Thierry Henry is doing everything he can to convince Marouane Fellaini to switch to Monaco after making contact with Manchester United over a January switch, according to reports in France.
Monaco are making a massive push to add more experience to their team as they hope to pull away from the relegation zone, with Cesc Fabregas and Naldo already moving to the Stade Louis II this month.
Now RMC Sport claim Henry wants to make Fellaini his next addition, proposing a loan until the end of the season.
Monaco first made contact earlier this month, but any deal has been knotty by an injury Fellaini picked up in training.
Fellaini was a regular in the United team under former boss Jose Mourinho, but he has only played three minutes of Premier League football under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
His first-team opportunities are expected to be limited as the Norwegian installs a more attacking approach at Old Trafford, so a move to Monaco could appeal.
Henry's raid on the Premier League may not end with Fellaini, with Monaco also looking to bring in Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi on loan to bolster their misfiring frontline.
