AS Monaco have opened talks with AC Milan for Robinho.

Radamel Falcao's knee injury and the decision to send new signing Lacina Traore on-loan to Everton has left ASM coach Claudio Ranieri short of striker options.

Sportmediaset says Robinho has been offered to Ranieri, who has given his approval for negotiations to kick off.

Robinho, who has struggled for form this season, is also happy with the interest and is willing to pack his bags for Monaco this week.

Negotiations were launched over the weekend and will continue today.
