London Irish have been linked are closing in on two new back-rows and a fly-half ahead of next season.
When asked about who he is chasing ahead of next season, London Irish coach Brian Smith would not be drawn on who his targets are.
"All the players that have been leaked are good," Smith told the website. "We are in discussions with some, but we are looking at a large number of players at the moment - we have been all season. I could give you a list of 15 players we are currently looking at or talking to."
And London Irish have also moved to tie down two players on new contracts with Ofisa Treviranus and Gerard Ellis extending their deals.
"It is great news for the club that both these players will be here next season," Smith said. "Ofisa has been outstanding for London Irish since he joined back in 2012 and Gerard is a hugely exciting prospect who we believe can be an International player in the years ahead."
