French newspaper Midi Olympique reports that ex-All Black loose forward Victor Vito is a target for Premiership club Bristol Bears.
The 31-year-old, who is out of contract with La Rochelle next summer, is expected to replace All Black loose forward, Steven Luatua, who wishes to return to New Zealand to reignite his international career, according to Rugby Pass.
Bristol Bears have been active in signing high-profile All Blacks, with Charles Piutau joining the club this year for their first season back in the Premiership.
Vito, who was capped 33 times for the All Blacks, was voted the best player in the Top 14 in 2017.
