Birmingham City could snap up two Hearts stars on pre-contract deals.
The Blues have little budget to work with, so Monk is on the lookout for players who can come in on free transfers at the end of the season.
Monk appears to be looking north of the border, and is looking to raid Heart of Midlothian for two of their influential players.
The Scottish Sun claim Djoum and Naismith are both on Birmingham's wish list, with pre-contract offers to the duo potentially in the pipeline.
Monk has allegedly had the pair watched on a number of occasions this season, including the recent trip to take on Kilmarnock earlier this month.
Djoum, 29, has featured prominently since his 2015 move to Tynecastle, and has notched 19 caps for Cameroon whilst enduring a nomadic career which has taken him to Belgium, Holland, Turkey and Poland.
Meanwhile, Naismith has grabbed nine goals in 16 league games this season, and could provide a boost to the Birmingham attacking options.
The 32-year-old is only on loan from Norwich, but with his deal at Carrow Road expiring this summer, Birmingham may hope to keep him in English football.
