The aforementioned pair have long been linked with returns to WA, with Bolton coming off-contract at season's end and likely demanding a large bump in salary following an impressive run of form this season.
While his electrifying 2021 season has aided the Tigers' push for finals contention, it has created a headache for their list management, with Richmond coach Damien Hardwick previously stating Bolton will likely need to take a cheaper deal to remain at Punt Road should he turn down lucrative offers elsewhere.
Clark's situation is another that has gained attention of rival clubs, with the promising utility out-of-favour at Kardinia Park.
The young Cat has shown promising glimpses across his 30 games in the hoops, with Pavlich backing the Dockers to move for Clark and Bolton at this year's exchange period.
“In terms of trading, Freo should absolutely still go after the likes of (Jordan) Clark and (Shai) Bolton from Western Australia to get them home and play for the Dockers,” Pavlich said on SEN WA’s Gilly and Goss.
The Dockers look to be one of the busier clubs heading into the 2021 trade and free agency windows, with gun midfielder Adam Cerra and ruck/forward utility Rory Lobb recently emerging as players with uncertain futures in purple.
Cerra looks to be one of the most coveted names in 2021, with several Victorian clubs circling the 21-year-old's signature.
Pavlich believes that Cerra will remain in Perth past this season, but admits it could be on a shorter deal that Fremantle fans would hope for.
“I think Adam Cerra’s going to stay,” Pavlich told
“All the talk is that as the year goes on and the end of the season nears, everyone’s saying that he’s going to go.
“It may not be the four-year or the five-year longer-term deal that everyone at Fremantle would like him to sign, but it might be a shorter contract.
“I think he’ll stay, and I think he should stay. Get himself to that free agency window and then he can make that call."
