Bath are now closing in on the signing of Argentina international Domingo Miotti after he was told he can exit his Jaguares contract with immediate effect.
Blessed with slick skills, pace to burn and a brilliant understanding of the game, the 24-year-old is one of rugby’s brightest prospects.
According to reports in South America, the former sevens star is the black, blue and whites new target after being priced out of a move for Handre Pollard.
A source close to the player has suggested that terms have been agreed, and the number 10 will join up with his new teammates ahead of the 2020/21 Gallagher Premiership season.
Miotti broke into the Jaguares in 2019 and is a player that Bath have scouted previously.
The uncapped number 10 was named in the Pumas 46-man squad as they prepare for The Rugby Championship following a five-month break because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
