After being selected with the fifth overall pick of the 2017 Draft, Fremantle's Adam Cerra has continued to go from strength to strength across his 58-game career.

However, a tweet on Thursday morning from 7AFL reporter Tom Browne has thrown a cat amongst the pigeons for Justin Longmuir and his recruitment staff, with Browne suggesting that Cerra's fourth season in purple is set to be his last.

According to Browne's brief message, the 21-year-old Victorian - who has long been linked with a move back home - has numerous clubs are vying for his signature, including the reigning premiers, Richmond.

The Eastern Ranges product has recorded an average of more than 22 possessions and three clearances per game across his nine appearances for the Dockers this season.

With this in mind, if Fremantle are keen to keep the out of contract engine roomer, a sizable pay increase appears necessary.

In other trade news, Sydney have opened contract negotiations with midfielder and club co-captain, Luke Parker.

Following a report from Callum Twomey, Parker has entered talks with the Swans, but as both parties are purportedly wary of the ambiguity surrounding the player's current Collective Bargaining Agreement, the club and their star are in no rush to come to an agreement.

Despite this, the 28-year-old Victorian is set to become an unrestricted free-agent at the completion of the 2021 season.

Twomey also stated that in-form Essendon defender, Mason Redman is close to coming to terms with the Bombers on a new deal.

Redman, 23, is currently enjoying a career year in which he has paired with Nick Hind as the offensive weapons from the Bombers' back half.

Fellow AFL journalists, Riley Beveridge and Mitch Cleary, have also claimed that North Melbourne youngster, Tom Powell and Gold Coast's Sam Flanders are set to re-commit their services to their respective clubs for next season.

Early reports suggest that Powell's deal will see him stay at Arden Street until the cessation of 2024.

Once his signature is secured, the precocious ball winner will be the latest in a long line of names that are set to stay at the club.

The Kangaroos announced on Thursday morning that fellow youngster, Charlie Lazzaro is also set to remain a 'Roo for a further two-years.
