AS Monaco are interested in Blackburn Rovers defender Gael Givet.

The Mirror says Rovers boss Steve Kean is already ­struggling for defenders and could also lose Chris Samba, who has been linked with Tottenham and Arsenal.

Givet played 178 times for Monaco during a seven-year spell that included a losing appearance in the 2004 Champions League final, and he could be open to a return.

He had a falling-out with ­Blackburn when he tried to sue them for money to pay a tax bill relating to his signing-on fee.
