Clermont have confirmed they are looking to sign a 'medical joker' to replace injured hooker Willie Wepener.
South African Wepener only joined the defending Top 14 champions from the Lions in the summer but he is now facing three months out after fracturing hand.
And director Jean-Marc Lhermet insists the club have a couple of potential targets.
"We've widened our search as much as possible, on both hemispheres," he said.
"We have targeted two or three potentially interesting and available players. We're making progress and working hard to get it done quickly."
