AS Monaco midfielder ready to quit club
The Portuguese star is reportedly set to hand in a transfer request if his side do not qualify for the Champions League.
Monaco trail Spanish side Valencia 3-1 on aggregate and face a tough job in the second leg.
And if they fail to turn the tie around, reports in Italy from Tuttomercatoweb claim they could lose their star player in Joao Moutinho.
The midfielder has long been on the radar of Premier League clubs, with Manchetser United, Chelsea and Arsenal are thought to be interested.
Tottenham Hotspur were also linked with a move two summers ago before the 28 year-old decided on a £18m switch to the French outfit.
With the information of a possible departure, these high profile Premier League clubs have been kept on high alert as the transfer deadline looms ever closer.
