Michael Jennings will face off against former teammate Josh Mansour this weekend when the Parramatta Eels play arch-rivals the Penrith Panthers.

But if it was Jennings call, they might be teammates again in the future. Mansour is off contract at the end of the season and the Eels are in the market.

With Parramatta about to start the 2018 season without their barnstorming winger Semi Radradra, it's been no secret that head coach Brad Arthur is keen to utilise some of his cap space to fill the massive void that Radradra left when he went to French rugby.

Mansour is reportedly high on the Eels wishlist and Jennings would love to be teammates again.

"He’s a close mate of mine. I was on his line for his wedding. If that’s ever a possibility to get Josh here, he’s still got a year there but there’s a bit of chatter he’s going to come here," Jennings told

"He hasn’t really told me that’s the case. He’s keeping it all to himself. If he’s going to make a decision and we have the opportunity to take Mansour, it would be great.

"It would add more experience and more class to our team.

"It’s a good rumour going around."
