The Rugby Paper reports Tigers are looking to add Springbok second row Eben Etzebeth, who confirmed today he’ll be playing for the Barbarians in December.
The 26-year-old has been linked with a £900,000 move to big spenders Toulon.
The Stormers lock currently has 73 Test caps and any move would come after the 2019 Rugby World Cup in which Etzebeth is expected to star for the re-emerging Boks who beat New Zealand earlier this month.
