5. Nick Isiekwe – Saracens
The 6’7 lock would be an incredible signing for any Gallagher Premiership club. With Maro Itoje, Will Sketon and George Kruis on huge contracts, Saracens may not have the budget to keep hold of upstart. If Tigers let a number of internationals leave this summer, Isiekwe could be the sort of star they target to improve their faltering pack.
Prediction: Joining Tigers, but this is just a guess
6. George Ford – Leicester Tigers
While talks are ongoing both he and the struggling Premiership club are hopeful of agreeing on a new deal before the end of the year which could see his salary rise to £600,000. If not, it’s thought that Sale sharks will renew their interest in the fly-half, who they tried to sign back in 2016.
PREDICTION: Stay at Leicester
7. Alex Lozowski – Saracens
Could be another victim of Sarries salary cap breach. Back in 2017 there was no shortage of interest and it’s more than likely there’d be a long queue of clubs interested in his services again. A return to Wasps is what seems most likely at this stage, with Lima Sopoaga and Jimmy Gopperth reportedly leaving the Ricoh this summer.
Prediction: Heading back to Wasps
8. Jonny May – Leicester Tigers
Tigers will ty to keep him, but the speedsters stock has significantly risen in recent years. With only a few years left, he’ll be looking for one last big payday before ending his career on the French coast probably.
Prediction: Joining Quins
