Jai Field would be perfect fit at Wigan Warriors, says Adrian Lam
It is understood the Parramatta livewire is close to agreeing a move to the club for 2021.
Last weekend, his appearance for the Eels ensured he has played enough NRL games to qualify for a work visa.
"I've watched him growing up - I've always been a fan - and he's someone who could fit into this club perfectly."
His capture would give Wigan more options as French weighs up his future. He has been offered a fresh Wigan deal but is also wanted in the NRL.
Jackson Hastings is also set to leave at the end of this season, while Thomas Leuluai may join Sean O’Loughlin in retiring.
Lam added: "Jai's a player we're looking at, he ticks the boxes for a player who could play in the halves, at full-back... when you're looking at that, it's easy to see he could fit into our position in one of those positions."
