Could Wigan Warriors make move for Super League star

Wigan Warriors in the 2019 World Club Challenge

We have already seen some big transfer stories develop for the 2024 Super League season at the likes at Leeds Rhinos, Wigan Warriors and Hull KR.

Hull FC have also been involved losing Chris Satae to Catalans Dragons and confirming Brad Dwyer’s departure set for a move to Warrington Wolves as Daryl Clark’s replacement with the hooker set for a move St Helens to replace the retiring James Roby.

But the confirmed business mostly comes from the Robins and Wigan. Hull KR have signed former Castleford Tigers target AJ Wallace from the Bradford Bulls, Oliver Gildart and Peta Hiku whilst Wigan have signed former Huddersfield Giants and Leeds hooker Kruise Leeming, his former teammate Sam Walters and Tiaki Chan.

Wigan don’t appear to be done there either. The Warriors are reportedly in the market for a new stand-off after Cade Cust’s transition to hooker and a centre with Toby King expected to return to Warrington Wolves in 2024 after his loan at the club.

They have been linked with a move for NRL star Brenko Lee and Catalans Dragons star Adam Keighran who has reportedly turned down two bumper contracts at Catalans for 2024 and beyond.

But could Wigan also be interested in another of Catalans’ players?

L’Independent has reported that Matt Ikavalu is set to leave the Dragons at the end of the season.

If he does indeed leave the Dragons, he would make a very good signing for the Warriors in 2024.

They may face competition from other Super League sides for the former Cronulla Sharks and Sydney Roosters man.

The likes of Castleford Tigers and Hull KR could be in the market for an outside back.

Interestingly during his time at Sydney he did play at the DW Stadium against Wigan in the 2019 World Club Challenge.
