AS Monaco are chasing Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov.

The Daily Star Sunday says money men behind the ambitious Ligue 1 club want to forge forward following their return to the French top flight.

Radamel Falcao, 27, of Atletico Madrid, and Manchester City's Carol Tevez, 29, have been wildly linked with the club but Berbatov, 32, is a more realistic target.

The Bulgarian scored 15 goals for Fulham last season, sparking questions over his future.
