Cameroon forward Moukandjo, 22, joined the principality club in January from Nimes and scored three times in 16 Ligue 1 matches in the second half of last season.

Nancy vice-president Nicolas Holveck told sports daily L'Equipe: "We have made a very nice offer for a player Monaco bought for 500,000 euros from Nimes last January. As yet, we have not received an answer."

Monaco coach Laurent Banide appears resigned to Moukandjo's exit, adding: "For Benjamin, things should accelerate in the coming days in the sense of a departure."

There have also been reports that another Monaco forward, Dieumerci Mbokani, could be set to join Anderlecht, who are poised to complete the sale of Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea.
