French rugby club Toulon is eyeing All Blacks back Israel Dagg as its next Kiwi import, according to Midi Olympique.

With the departure of former Wallabies Matt Giteau and Drew Mitchell looming, the news website reports Toulon coach Mourad Boudjellal wants Dagg and English wing Chris Ashton on his team.

Further shakeups may be ahead for the club because there are whispers ex-Springbook Bryan Habana and British fullback Leigh Halfpenny may also leave the squad.


If Dagg accepts the Toulon offer, he will be back on the same side as his former All Blacks teammate Ma'a Nonu, who signed a two-year deal with the club in 2014.

Rumours are also circulating that first five-eighth Aaron Cruden may say yes to a seven-figure offer from French club Montpellier.
