Ligue 2 side want Stamford Bridge midfielder.
Monaco are the latest club to show interest in Chelsea’s Frank Lampard.
The England midfielder, 34, is set to leave Stamford Bridge in January or the summer and has offers from Chinese side Guizhou Renhe and LA Galaxy. Paris Saint-Germain are also interested.
But Monaco, backed by Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev, want Lampard to spearhead their revival after relegation last year.

Clearly Monaco have money to invest in the kind of lucrative deal that would perhaps tempt Frank Lampard it seems very unlikely the Chelsea man would be interested in moving to a second tier French side.
Therefore perhaps a move in the summer if promotion has been secured would make such a potential move a reality.
Former Blues boss Claudio Ranieri is in charge of the principality side and they currently sit top of the table after an impressive start to their Ligue 2 campaign.
Lampard’s Chelsea career does appear to be edging towards completion but a lot could depend on whether Rafa Benitez opts to use the England man more frequently than he had been called upon by predecessor Roberto Di Matteo.
The former West Ham man has started just four of Chelsea’s 13 Premier League fixtures this season.
