Blackpool winger Tom Ince could be heading to French big spenders Monaco after speculation increases, according to the Guardian.
Ince is reportedly being monitored by a number of clubs including, Swansea, Tottenham, Inter Milan and Ajax but Ligue 1 side Monaco are supposedly in pole position.
But if Ince does decide to go abroad to play his football, Blackpool could be left with as little as £155,000 in compensation.
The winger has six months left on his current contract which runs out in the summer.
Monaco spent big money in the transfer market last summer when they returned to the top of the French League. They signed high quality players such as Radamel Falcao, Eric Abidal and Joao Moutinho.
The Blackpool man has scored seven goals in the Championship this season, playing in 22 games.
The Tangerines are currently 14th in the Championship, five points of the play-offs and it would certainly be a step up for Ince if he moved to Monaco who are second in Ligue 1.
The England U21 international started his career at Liverpool but made his name at Notts County where he went on loan and scored two goals in six games.
He then signed for Blackpool and has scored 33 goals for the Seasiders since joining in 2011.
Blackpool may find it hard to keep Ince if the right offer comes in as they may look at the long term sale and how it could improve the club with the money they receive. Although losing one of their best players could seriously dent any aims of reaching the play-offs or higher.
