The Parramatta Eels hopes of luring Semi Radradra back to the NRL next year have hit a roadblock with yet another French rugby club reportedly seeking to sign him.
Radradra has made a strong impression for Top 14 club Toulon since departing Parramatta at the end of this year's NRL season and is rumoured to have caught the eye of rival club Bordeaux.
The Fijian winger has a contract for one year with the French giants with an option for a one‑year extension.
That means the try‑scoring machine could be back for the Eels next year at the conclusion of the Top 14 season in June.
The Eels are holding out hope they can lure Radradra for the finals and are on record as saying they have the room in their salary cap to accommodate him.
According to French newspaper Midi Olympique, Bordeaux have made contact with Radradra and are prepared to offer him a significant salary increase.
Radradra’s salary with Toulon is reportedly close to 1 million euros.
It's reported Radradra recently flew to France's west coast to meet with Bordeaux officials.
