Toulon are reportedly closing in on a deal for All Blacks centre Ma'a Nonu.

Nonu was heavily linked with a switch to Clermont Auvergne last season but eventually settled on a further year in New Zealand ahead of next year's Rugby World Cup. But Monday's Midi Olympique claims Toulon are on the verge of agreeing a two-year contract with the All Blacks centre that will see him arrive in the Top 14 after next year's global gathering.

The newspaper has also linked Toulon with moves for South Africa back-row Willem Alberts and Australia fullback Israel Folau. Toulon owner Mourad Boudjellal has previously said he is keen to add a quartet of world-class players to the team following next year's World Cup.

The newspaper also claims Toulon are close to agreeing new deals with Carl Hayman, Sebastien Tillous-Borde and Chris Masoe.
