Porto midfielder Joao Moutinho has revealed he would be interested in a move to the Premier League, amid interest from Chelsea.

The west Londoners have been reportedly chasing the Portuguese international, who has played a role in the club's Primeira Liga triumph this season.

Moutinho was expected to following Andre Villas-Boas to Chelsea upon his arrival at the club last summer, but the despite the sacking of the 34-year-old, the club still seem intent on bringing in the dynamic midfielder.

Moutinho is yet to begin discussions with any Premier League clubs.

"Every player wants to experiment with different leagues," Moutinho said. "Right now I'm happy because I am playing in one of the biggest in Europe. But if a good opportunity arose we'd have to see.

"The Premier League? I can only say it's one of the best leagues in the world - but I have not spoken with any club."

Moutinho joined Porto in 2010 after 11 years with Sporting Lisbon, whom he played for as a youngster from 1999.

He has 40 international caps to his name, making his debut in 2005 during the win over Egypt and is expected to make up part of Paulo Bento's squad that travels to the summer's European Championships.

Chelsea's transfer policy this summer is unknown, with a permanent manager yet to be appointed following the sacking of Villas-Boas in March, however they have recruited Marko Marin for the new season, a purchase interim boss Roberto Di Matteo said he played little part in.

Therefore the club may continue to look for new faces before hiring a new boss, a race which Di Matteo looks favourite to win having won the FA Cup on Saturday after victory over Liverpool at Wembley.

The club also have the Champions League final against Bayern Munich to look forward to next week, which could be their only path back into Europe's premier club competition for next season, should they fail to beat Liverpool in the Premier League on Tuesday night.

Keeping some of their old faces is another of Chelsea's summer challenges, with the future of Didier Drogba, Salomon Kalou and Florent Malouda uncertain.
