Shinnie will also attract attention from England and three-year-old Glasgow club The Sevco, with his agent Clive Hart coming under attack from ICT boss John Hughes for unsettling the player.
Talks between Aberdeen and Inverness about a summer move for the left-back broke down when the clubs failed to agree a fee.
However Aberdonian Shinnie is still on the Pittodrie radar and manager Derek McInnes could be set to pounce in January.
With the 23-year-old's contract set to expire at the end of May next year, Shinnie is free to sign a pre-contract agreement with another club on December 1st.
With the Dons' finances stable after a fresh injection of cash, the club could be set to pay a small transfer fee for the first time in four years to grab the player mid-season.
Agent Hart confirmed Shinnie is ready for a fresh challenge away from the Highlands but has refused to be drawn on his preferred destination.
He said: "Graeme has had some great times at Inverness and is really enjoying his football under John Hughes.
"But he feels he is at a stage in his career where he wants to try something different, whether that be in England or Scotland."
However Inverness boss Hughes countered: "We're desperate to keep Graeme Shinnie here.
"Can we spin the plates to see what we can do for him? That's what we're trying to do right at this time."
