Cordero heavily linked with both an Aviva and Pro14 club

  1. Santiago Cordero is reportedly on the move north to either the Aviva Premiership or the Pro14.

Cordero played his rugby last season for Argentine Super Rugby franchise the Jaguares but was not named in their 2018 squad.

The winger/fullback has been linked to the Leicester Tigers by a number of Argentine media outlets and Matt O’Connor confirmed the clubs interest.

“We are always in the market to bring quality into the group,” said O’Connor.

“He’s a guy who is available and we have had a conversation with him around that.”

“But it is around dispensation and budget and all the other dynamics that go with the game these days.”

“It is nowhere near a certainty but we have had a conversation because he is a quality player and we think he would add a lot to the group.”

Earlier today Colm Kinsella of The Limerick Leader reported that Munster also have an interest in the 24-year-old.

Munster are currently on the lookout for a replacement fullback, after Racing 92 today confirmed that Simon Zebo would be joining their ranks for the 2018/2019 season.

Cordero caught the attention of a wider rugby audience during the 2015 World Cup with his pace and stepping ability, having scored memorable tries against Georgia and Tonga.

The Pumas ace made a significant contribution to Argentina’s fourth place finish in the tournament.

To date, he has been capped 33 times by Los Pumas scoring a total of 55 points.
