AS Monaco has been hunting for talent, especially new strikers, as the likelihood of Kylian Mbappe leaving gets stronger by the day.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United have been approached by Monaco over possible moves for Alexis Sanchez, Diego Costa and Anthony Martial. Martial would be returning to Monaco where he was popular with supporters.
