Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi is close to completing a loan move to Monaco, Sky sources understand.
The striker looks set to have his season-long loan at Valencia cut short in order to make the move to the Ligue 1 side, who are managed by former Belgium assistant Thierry Henry.
Earlier this week, Henry admitted he holds an interest in Batshuayi, who spent two seasons at Marseille before joining Chelsea in 2016.
"Michy? I know him, we rubbed shoulders with Belgium, he is a player who can be interesting," Henry said.
"But again, nothing is done. You have to be patient. It's important that players know the championship, though."
Monaco signed Batshuayi's former Chelsea team-mate Cesc Fabregas on Friday as they bid to preserve their Ligue 1 status.
Henry's side, who have lost three of their last four matches, sit 19th in the table ahead of Sunday night's visit to the Stade Velodrome to take on Batshuayi's old side Marseille.
