British and Irish Lions backrow Peter O’Mahony is said to be the target of a number of clubs in France, and at least one Aviva Premiership side.

That’s according to Ireland legend Brian O’Driscoll, who was speaking on Irish sport radio programme ‘Off the Ball’ yesterday.

O’Driscoll said there is ‘huge’ interest in the fiery backrow, and suggested that the IRFU better ‘pony up’ for players like O’Mahony.

O’Mahony’s current contract is set to run out in 2018.

Speaking earlier in the week to The Times, O’Mahony appeared to pour some cold water on the rumours, although he stopped short of ruling out a move abroad: “Ah look, you can never rule anything out but Ireland and Munster are my priority at the moment, certainly.

“I’ve a young family and you can’t say no to something that might happen down the line but my passion would be in Munster and Ireland, certainly, as I’m sitting here now.”
