Key position Tiger Mabior Chol is reportedly being pursued by as many as five rival clubs, reports The Herald Sun's Jon Ralph.

The report states that the Gold Coast Suns is one of those teams looking to lure the 24-year old out of Punt Road, having enquired about his availability in recent weeks.

Chol moved from South Sudan to Australia via Egypt in 2008, with his family then settling in Queensland.

Earlier this month, Zero Hanger named Chol as one of five big trade targets for the Brisbane Lions to pursue.

The forward/ruckman, who is out of contract at season's end, played 11 AFL games last year but has failed to make an appearance at senior level in 2021.

All up, the big man has played 21 matches since being drafted out of Aspley by the Tigers in the 2016 Rookie Draft.

It is understood that Chol's eagerness to play senior footy could force him out of Richmond if he fails to break into their best 22 this year.

Chol's manager Ralph Carr confirmed to The Herald Sun that there was interest in him from multiple clubs.

The Suns have also been linked to fellow Tigers tall Callum Coleman-Jones.
