Newly promoted Ligue 1 side Monaco are set to continue a busy summer in the transfer market after reports in France suggested the club are keen to sign Manchester United midfielder Nani and Liverpool defender Daniel Agger.

French newspaper L'Equipe reported that Agger has been offered a four-year deal as Monaco attempt to build a squad immediately capable of challenging for major honours and qualifying for European football.

Monaco have already signed Joao Moutinho, Radamel Falcao, Ricardo Carvalho and James Rodriguez for a combined total of around £110m and it seems they are far from finished as they next line up a bid for Agger.

The Liverpool defender made 35 league appearances last season and was the one centre-back that manager Brendan Rodgers refused to leave out the side as Jamie Carragher and Martin Skrtel battled to appear alongside the Dane.

Agger has been linked with a move away from Liverpool in recent weeks with Napoli said to be interested as new manager Rafael Benitez looks to secure the services of the defender he knows so well.

There is no suggestion of a fee but with billionaire owner Dmitry Rybolovlev promising manager Claudio Ranieri up to €250m to spend in the summer, it is likely that they will make a very attractive offer to the Reds.

Agger is not the only Premier League player being linked with Monaco as the report suggests that Manchester United winger Nani is also wanted by the mega-rich French club.

The Portugal international started just 11 league games last season and has been consistently linked with a move away from Old Trafford in recent months.

Juventus have been heavily linked with the Manchester United midfielder but it seems Monaco are hoping that they can convince Nani to join their project.

Once again there has been no suggestion of a fee in L'Equipe but just days ago the Mirror reported that Monaco would be willing to make an offer of £20m for someone who was very much considered a squad player last season.

Monaco are hoping that by attracting some of these star names they will be able to prove they are serious in their attempts to restore the club to former glories and genuinely challenge the likes of Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain for the league title.
