Cape Town - French club Toulon are reportedly interested in the services of New Zealand duo Israel Dagg and Malakai Fekitoa.

French rugby publication Midi Olympique reported that Dagg and Fekitoa met with the Toulon owner Mourad Boudjellal at a Paris hotel, with Dagg receiving an offer.

The All Blacks played France in the French capital this past weekend.

This is not the first time Dagg has been linked with a move abroad. The fullback turned wing was last week linked with a move to Irish club Leinster. Dagg had an excellent season for the All Blacks, fighting his way back into the team after his omission from last year's World Cup squad.

But Toulon reportedly face stiff competition from Bordeaux and Toulouse for Dagg's services. According to Midi Olympique,  the French giants didn't face any competition for Fekitoa's signature, but were yet to make an offer.

Dagg and Fekitoa might not be the only All Blacks to leave, with Aaron Cruden reportedly interested in joining the exodus. The flyhalf, who has played second fiddle to Beauden Barrett all season, has been linked with a move to Montpellier.
