In the 2009 off-season, Germain signed his first professional contract agreeing to a three-year deal. He had previously played on the Monaco Championnat de France amateur (CFA) team that won the reserve team title in the 2008–09 season. Despite signing professional terms, the striker spent the next two seasons playing on the club's reserve team. Germain made his professional debut on 1 May 2011 in a league match against Saint-Étienne appearing as a substitute. He repeated this feat in the team's final league match of the season against Lyon appearing as a substitute in a 2–0 defeat. The defeat confirmed Monaco's relegation to Ligue 2.
In the second division, Germain was permanently promoted to the senior team and, on 15 August 2011, he scored his first goal for the club in a 2–1 loss against Reims. In the following month, he scored his second career goal in 2–2 draw against Sedan. In the 2012–13 campaign, Germain scored 14 goals in 35 matches for AS Monaco as they got promoted to Ligue 1. On 23 July 2013, Germain signed a contract extension with Monaco, keeping him at the club until 2017.
