Rugby union are looking to poach Parramatta star Maika Sivo, according to a report by The Daily Telegraph.
It comes just two years after Semi Radradra quit the Eels to join the rival code.
It is understood that Sivo, the NRL's leading tryscorer, has been offered a deal to play for Australia at the Olympic Games, with an offer coming last week to play play rugby sevens for the green and gold.
The 25-year old only just moved down under four years ago to pursue his rugby league dream, who has been told he will play alongside the likes Lewis Holland and Tom Connor in the Australian rugby sevens team at the Paris Olympics if he makes the code switch.
It is believed that it Sivo could earn up to $100,000 for a 16-week stint leading up to the Olympics.
The impressive rookie can hit the open market from November 1 after after knocking back a new three-year deal that included an upgrade offer of just over $100,000.
And a number of rival clubs are expected to come calling, with one Sydney club reportedly valuing him at $600,000 a season.
Eels coach Brad Arthur was hopeful that Sivo would remain at the club.
“Right from the start I could tell we had a player,” Arthur said.
“From when we first got our hands on Semi to when we first got our hands on Maika, Maika was further along. And he knew the game better.
“He wasn’t as good physically but he had only done three or four weeks pre-season with us because he had the shoulder reconstruction.’’
