As reported by Fox Footy's Tom Morris, Clark is understood to have held discussions with Dockers coach Justin Longmuir, with a move back to his home state of Western Australia seen as a likely outcome for the 20-year-old.
Fremantle have been closely linked to Clark's signature across the course of this season, with the Claremont product being limited to just the 11 matches in 2021, three of which coming as an unused medical sub.
Having had his side's season conclude in Perth last Friday, Clark has used the time in WA to meet with Longmuir and other Dockers staff.
Morris reports no trade request has been submitted by Clark, nor have Fremantle approached Geelong.
Over his short 32-game career, Clark has shown promising glimpses across defence, midfield and attack, and will be keen to find more minutes at AFL level.
Fremantle could see Clark as a viable and flexible asset as they embark on a hopeful return to the top-eight next season.
Likely to lose Adam Cerra to a Victorian club this off-season, the Dockers will be looking to plug the hole left by their gun midfielder.
In recent weeks, the WA club has been linked to out-of-favour Suns midfielder Will Brodie, while Clark's teammate Quinton Narkle is also believed to have been in the Dockers' sights.
However, Narkle is tipped to remain at Kardinia Park, with manager Ralph Carr telling SEN this week discussions on a new deal have continued.
"To be totally transparent, we're working through a deal (to stay). If we get the deal done, great, if we can't get the deal done, he might go," Carr said.
A preliminary final loss to Melbourne last week has since seen many question Geelong's ability to contend for a premiership in 2022 with an ageing list.
Narkle, Clark and midfielder Charlie Constable are among the young names that could depart Geelong this off-season following a year of limited opportunities.
