(Corrects headline, first paragraph to show newspaper report was in Corriere della Sera.)

Aug. 6 (Bloomberg) -- French President Francois Hollande is pushing Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti to request aid from Europe’s bailout fund to help ease speculation among investors, Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera reported, without citing anyone.

Hollande’s strategy, which also includes pressing Spain toward a request for aid, is designed to help protect France from market speculation, Corriere said. Monti doesn’t like the idea of requesting aid and may speak today with European Central Bank President Mario Draghi, the newspaper reported.
