Cape Town - French Top 14 giants Toulouse have reportedly set their sights on Springbok and Cheetahs fullback Willie le Roux.

The Rugby Time website reports that Toulouse are looking to sign the 25-year-old fullback after next year's Rugby World Cup.

Le Roux is contracted to the Cheetahs until November next year so would be in the market for the 2015/16 season.

According to the Rugby Transferts website, English club Saracens were also interested in signing Le Roux, as well as several Japanese teams.

Le Roux, who was one of the nominees for the 2014 IRB World Player of the Year, has played 25 Tests for the Springboks since making his debut in 2013.
