The Daily Mail have a rather interesting claim for our punters here in the Football Transfer Tavern.
They claim that one of the brightest young stars in the English game could well be set to leave the country.
Despite a whole host of sides being keen on landing Blackpool’s Thomas Ince, it seems that a move to Ligue 1 with Monaco could well be on the cards.
As our landlord notes, it is never good to see the best talent in the game leave our shores and even more so when they are English.
Not only were the likes of Tottenham Hotspur keen on the winger, but also Liverpool, and we are willing to bet a couple more sides could well be ready to join the race as well.
It is clear that some of our punters are not impressed with the fact that Ince looks set to leave Blackpool and more to the point, the fact that the Seasiders will only manage to get around £155,000 in compensation. This is not exactly the price they would have hoped to receive for the star who is now set to leave on a free.
Given his father, Paul Ince, is already down in London having talks over the move, it seems clear that this is more than a rumour and Ince could well be set to play alongside the likes of Radamel Falcao at the Stade Louis II.
Is this transfer to Ligue 1 just days away? Let us know your thoughts below.
