Leicester Tigers five transfer targets and the likelihood of each signing

LEICESTER TIGERS boss Steve Borthwick is still working on potential signings despite the ongoing salary cap investigation.

The club is currently under investigation by Premiership Rugby’s salary cap director, Andrew Rogers, for offences alleged to have taken place between 2016 and 2020.

However, it’s business as usual for Borthwick who is trying to strengthen his side after it was confirmed Ellis Genge and George Ford will depart the club this summer to Bristol Bears and Sale Sharks respectively.

Check out five possible targets below.

#1. Jimmy Gopperth from Wasps

Gopperth, who turns 39 in June, has been with Wasps since 2015 and scored the winning points as his current club to end Leicester’s 16 game unbeaten run yesterday. A move to Tigers potentially could see the fly-half/centre take up a player/coach role like the one created for fellow veteran, Richard Wigglesworth.

Likelihood: 6/10
