Monaco are interested in making a move for Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany, according to reports in the British press.

Kompany has recently returned from a long-standing series of injuries which have disrupted the defender's run in the City team under boss Manuel Pellegrini.

The Belgium international was on the bench for City's 3-2 Champions League win over Bayern Munich. However, Ligue 1 side Monaco are thought to be keen on bolstering their back line with 27-year-old.

The Daily Express reports the French club are lining up a £17 million bid for Kompany, while it also suggests agencies in the French media have already held preliminary talks with the player's agent.
