The England Under-21 international began the season with Blackpool before seeing it out with Crystal Palace after completing a loan move in January.
With reports that Italian giants Inter Milan are interested in signing him, Ince is refusing to rule out a move away from the Premier League.
He told Sky Sports News Radio: "Going abroad isn't a no-go. It's something that you have to take into consideration. I've always watched European football, so I'm not afraid to do that if I have to."
Ince's father, Paul, spent two seasons at Inter during the 1990s in between spells with Manchester United and Liverpool.
Paul will play a big part in Tom's decision should he choose to follow in his father's footsteps.
However, the 22-year-old is keen to stress that he will not be rushed into choosing where he is going next.
He said: "It's been a bit of a long season for me. Once the season finishes you always like to take a step away from football and just go away and relax.
"It's the first time I've ever really experienced being a free agent. I've got great guidance behind me in my old man. He's played at such a great level and has all of my best interests at heart.
"I'll have a sit down with him and see where's best to go. If that's staying in England then great, or if there's an opportunity abroad which I feel is right for me then we'll sit down and talk about it."
