    Bordeaux reportedly interested in Radradra

    French rugby union club Bordeaux have reportedly expressed interest in signing former Parramatta NRL star Semi Radradra.

    - article from www.rugbyleague.co.nz

    Parramatta's 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 back the fan favourite in time for the finals and are on record as saying they have the room in their salary cap to accommodate him.

    The blue and gold faithful would be licking their lips at the prospect of Radradra teaming up with the recently returned Jarryd Hayne, however a play by Bordeaux for his services threatens to scupper that plan.

    According to French newspaper Midi Olympique, Bordeaux have made contact with the former Australian Kangaroos representative and are prepared to offer him a significant salary increase.

    It's reported Radradra recently flew to France's west coast to meet with Bordeaux officials.

    Radradra has proven himself a star in his switch to the 15-man game and has struck up a strong combination with Chris Ashton, setting up many of his teammate's 11 tries this season.
