AS Monaco are ready to make an offer for West Ham United fullback Herita Ilunga.

Ilunga is prepared to leave the Hammers this month after seeing Wayne Bridge arrive from Manchester City to take his place at left-back.

Monaco hope to push through a deal for Ilunga once they close terms with Manchester City for striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

DR Congo international Ilunga has been with West Ham since 2008.
