Thierry Henry is reportedly interested in taking Watford striker Stefano Okaka to Monaco in January.

With Okaka well down the attacking pecking order at Vicarage Road and Henry in need of goals to fire what has been an inauspicious start to his managerial career, the move could suit both parties.

Okaka has made just two appearances this season, with his sole Premier League outing coming as a late sub at Newcastle United.

Henry, meanwhile, has won only two of his 10 games since taking the helm at Monaco in October and his side currently sit 17th in the Ligue 1 table with 13 points to their name.

Besiktas are said to be rivalling Monaco for Okaka's signature and the last two transfer windows have seen the 29-year-old linked with a move away from Watford, who he joined in the summer of 2016.

A reunion with Walter Mazzarri at Torino has been mooted previously and the forward is understood to crave more regular game time, something he has rarely enjoyed at Watford.

This season has seen Watford' head coach Javi Gracia favour Andre Gray, Troy Deeney and Isaac Success as his regular attacking options, while Gerard Deulofeu has also played as a forward.
