The French side are on the look out for a new out-half after Jonny Sexton announced that'll he'll return to Leinster at the end of the current season and Carter is the man Racing want to fill the number 10 shirt.

Speaking to French radio station, Sud Radio, Lorenzetti says Carter is one their wanted list, "Dan Carter may be an opportunity to strengthen the club next season, if the coaches agrees."

The 32-year-old had a previous spell in France with Perpignan back in 2008 but that didn't work out at all after rupturing an Achilles tendon which meant he only played five games.
