Toulouse back-row Yannick Nyanga is being targeted by several clubs ahead of his contract running out at the end of this season.

The 30-year-old France international has been with Toulouse since 2005 after joining from Béziers, a year after his France debut.

Naturally given Nyanga's success over the years there is plenty of interest from clubs in France, but also in England.

L'Equipe report that Montpellier are the frontrunners for his signature, with Racing Métro, Toulon and Leicester Tigers also in pursuit.

Nyanga returned to international action in 2012 after five years in the wilderness following his involvement at the 2007 Rugby World Cup.

He was particularly outstanding in France's win over England in the 2014 Six Nations in Paris and now has 39 caps for his country.
