Moutinho has grown disillusioned with life at Monaco, seeing the likes of James Rodriguez and Radamel Falcao shipped out over the summer.
Currently 12 points off league leaders Marseille in Ligue 1, Monaco already look like missing out on Champions League football next season.
This could therefore be their last year in the Champions League for a while, with the Principality side currently second in Group C. They must avoid defeat against Zenit St Petersburg this Tuesday night in order to secure their place in the last 16, a feat that should be easily within their grasp.
Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho are both known to be fans of Portuguese midfielder Moutinho, and Mendes has allegedly been in contact with both managers. We could see the creative star in the Premier League as soon as January, although Monaco will surely look to recoup some of the massive fee they paid for him.
