AS Monaco are stepping up their pursuit of Everton striker Louis Saha.

The Daily Express says Saha is a target for Monaco after the French club watched him plunder his first league goal in 11 months in the win over Tottenham.

The Toffees have, in turn, been following the fortunes of Congo and Monaco striker Dieumerci Mbokani but there could be problems gaining a work permit.

Everton boss David Moyes will be reluctant to part with Saha just as he is rediscovering his best form.
