REPORT | Chris Ashton reportedly set to leave Harlequins

2. Marcus Smith

Bath have reportedly launched a huge move to try and sign Harlequins star, according to the Mail Online. The 21-year-old, who has also been linked with a move to Lyon in the Top 14, will be out of contract in 2021 when his current three-year contract comes to an end.

Smith, who currently earns £230k per season, is one of the most exciting prospects in world rugby could potentially double his earning to around half a million with his next move. Bath, who are desperately short of fly-halves, have seen moves for other high-profile fly-halves, such as Handre Pollard and Finn Russell, fail in recent times.

DID YOU KNOW? Born in the Philippines to a British father and a Filipina mother, Smith picked up the game of rugby union at the age of seven with Centaurs RFC when his family moved to Singapore.
