Munster will be looking to rebuild under a new director of rugby.
French regional newspaper, Le Dauphine, have reported that Munster are interested in signing Chris Farrell from Grenoble at the conclusion of his contract with the Top 14 club in 2017.
The article reporting the news states that while 6ft 5in Farrell has been offered a contract extension by Bernard Jackman’s side, he has yet to sign a new deal that would see the former Ulster player remain in France until 2019.
Farrell’s procrastination has therefore alerted Munster, who will be boosted by the fact that Le Dauphine believe Joe Schmidt is keen to see the centre return to Ireland.
Nevertheless, the southern province will most likely have to see off competition from Ulster if they are to land Farrell.
However if he were to sign, Munster could potentially field two Ulstermen in their midfield, after Sam Arnold agreed to join Anthony Foley’s side earlier this year.
