The profile of the native of London would please the club of the Principality and its sports director, Paul Mitchell, inducted into the post last summer. But the Monegasques will face heavy competition this summer while AC Milan and Arsenal are also mentioned as contenders for his signing.
Ralph Hasenhüttl, coach of the Saints, is preparing for the departure of his left-back this summer and Southampton have already drawn up a list of names to succeed him.
An experienced player
Trained at Chelsea, Ryan Bertrand was quickly seen as a great hope in his post. The former Blues player even started a Champions League final against Bayern Munich in 2012 with Chelsea.
Since then, the Englishman has navigated between the formations of the Premier League and now has 258 appearances in the English league. At 31, Ryan Bertrand could be tempted to discover the foreigner. In Monaco, Caio Henrique has the confidence of Niko Kovac and the former Parisian, Fodé Ballo-Touré, has seen his playing time gradually decrease.
With many young people in its workforce, AS Monaco could be tempted to bring in a few more experienced players to come and supervise the progress of its young shoots. Especially if the Champions League is there next season.
