Munster are looking to replace departing fullback Simon Zebo with Argentina international utility back Santiago Cordero, according to a report in The Limerick Leader this morning.
Cordero starred in the 2015 Rugby World Cup, starting against Ireland in the quarter-final and has 33 caps to his name. The 24-year-old plays his rugby with the Jaguares, but has not been included in their squad for the 2018 season.
He has also been linked with a move to the Premiership, but it now seems Munster have identified him as a prime target.
Meanwhile, highly rated South African tighthead prop 18-year-old Keynan Knox is training with Munster’s Academy.
