The Fulham striker, who has been tracked during the January transfer window by Arsenal and former club Tottenham, is expected to undergo a medical ahead of his move to the Ligue 1 side.

Monaco boss Claudio Ranieri is hoping to conclude the signing of Berbatov, 33, before tonight's 11pm deadline having lost star striker Radamel Falcao to a serious knee injury.

Having also let Lacina Traore join Everton on loan for the remainder of the season, Ranieri wants Berbatov to provide a solution to his dwindling forward line.
