3. Zach Mercer to Montpellier
Bath’s talismanic back-rower could be a shock departure next summer when his contract with the black, blue and whites expires. New Montpellier director of rugby Philippe Saint-Andre is understood to be a big fan of Mercer and has told The Daily Mail: “We are watching many players and Zach is one of them.”
With an England return looking unlikely, this could well happen.
