Wanted: Jonathan Sexton

Ireland and Leinster fly-half Jonathan Sexton has been linked with a move to Racing Métro, according to reports in France.

Sexton has allegedly met twice with millionaire Racing owner Jacky Lorenzetti, whilst Midi Olympique claim a deal could be concluded before the start of the Six Nations.

The 27-year-old's current deal with Leinster expires in June and having won three Heineken Cup titles in the last four years with the Irish side, Sexton is likely to receive plenty of interest from other clubs over the coming months.

One of the frontrunners for the Lions fly-half shirt for their upcoming tour of Australia, a shaky performance from Juan Martin Hernandez in Racing's loss to Saracens in the Heineken Cup underlined the French side's need for a more clinical edge, with Sexton certainly fitting the bill.

Racing have already signed up Juandre Kruger, Marc Andreu and Brian Mujati ahead of next season with Soane Tonga'uiha, Jamie Roberts, Dan Lydiate and more linked with the club.
