Adam Coleman looks set to leave Australia for Europe and has been linked with a move to Munster.

Coleman is being targeted by clubs in Ireland, England and France after Western Forces was culled in the downsizing of Super Rugby.

The Australian Telegraph reports that sources suggest Coleman may follow former Western coach Dave Wessels wherever he ends up.

Wessels (36) is rumoured to be in Ireland this week to interview for the director of rugby position with Munster.

Wessels has been heavily linked to be Tony McGahan's replacement at Melbourne Rebels. According to Erasmus, Wessels remains in contention for the Munster position and that he is certain no one has yet been offered the job, but that his former consultant analyst at Stormers would fit the bill.

"Obviously the guys have asked my opinion about him and that is my involvement, just an opinion. I am not involved further," said Erasmus.

"I don't know how far along the line it is. His name was in the mix in July and there are a few names I saw, so I think he is one of a few good candidates. I'm not sure how close they are really to finalising that, but he is one of the good options.

"I know him really well. He was defence coach at the Brumbies, head coach at the Force. He is an intelligent guy, I can vouch for his character.

"There are so many guys who would be good fits because lots of guys want to be at this club. I can vouch for his character, I worked with him and (can vouch for) his work ethic.

"But I don't know with whom he is actually competing at the end. There might be great characters as well, but he would be one of the good fits."
