Cape Town - Big spending French giants Toulon are reportedly eager to lure Springbok lock Eben Etzebeth to France after next year's Rugby World Cup.

According to French newspaper, Var Matin, Etzebeth could join Toulon as a replacement for compatriot Bakkies Botha, who recently retired from international rugby and will leave the French and European champions at the end of the current European season.

Etzebeth, 23, has played 33 Tests for the Springboks since making his debut against England in Durban in 2012.

The 2015 Rugby World Cup, to be staged in England and Wales, runs from September 18-October 31.
