The Gold Coast Titans are under “excruciating pressure” to re-sign forward Jai Arrow with three western Sydney NRL clubs chasing the Origin representative.
The Daily Telegraph’s Dean Ritchie told NRL Tonight that Arrow is being courted with a four-year, $3.2 million deal.
The 24-year-old is off-contract at the end of the 2020 season with clubs officially having to wait until November 1 to make their move.
“The Titans have opened negotiations to try and re-sign (Arrow), he’s obviously the jewell in their pack,” Ritchie told NRL Tonight.
“There are three Sydney clubs very interested, the Parramatta Eels, Wests Tigers and the Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs.
“It will be a four-year deal worth about $3.2 million so there’s some big money on offer for Jai Arrow here.”
Ritchie said the signature of Arrow was a must for the club moving forward. “The Gold Coast Titans and Mal Meninga, their senior official, are under excruciating pressure to sign this bloke because if he leaves you’ve got an underperforming side, a club with no coach and you’re star player walks out.”
Ritchie said the Titans were on the clock to lock him down before Arrow entered the open market on November 1.
“As of November 1 the Sharks will start to circle. Come November 1, watch for a frenzy to start around Jai Arrow.”
