Apparently we are in talks with 34 Year old Italian Loosehead Aguero.

(Source Mortimer's Twitter)

Don't know much about him TBH.

As long as it means Fraser can go back to TH I'm happy.

Mattias Aguero? Used to play for Sarries about 5-6 years ago. I thought he'd retired.

Premiership and international experience, which will come in handy at this point, but I thought we had brought in Djustice-Duru as loosehead cover. What happened with him?

Mortimer also tweeted

Meanwhile Agüero's Italy teammate, Leonardo Ghiraldini, was at Toulouse on Saturday. @midi_olympique says he met with Toulouse

Yep that's the one, playing for Zebre ATM 34 years old.

Guessing he might be viewed as a project or Might be an issue with work permit.

Do we want to keep this thread about us as per the title instead of adding in other clubs?

Manu being offered £500k by these two clubs is not ideal really is it :smt009

Djustice is on a trial, suspect that as he was in the country following World Cup opportune to have a look, knows Tigers as was briefly in academy. Where are Sio and Lower Manu though?
Disappointing if Ghiraldini does go to Toulouse (not heard that one)
