Daniel Talia's future at Adelaide looks uncertain as he remains unsigned to West Lakes past this season.

Talia has yet to play this season after suffering several setbacks with a foot injury and according to Crows legend and football director Mark Ricciuto.

Speaking on Triple M Adelaide, Ricciuto cast doubt over whether Talia will remain a Crow.

"I’m not sure. We’ll see how his foot comes up," he said.

"He’s uncontracted."

The dual All-Australian and 2012 Rising Star winner is one of several key Crows out-of-contract, with Taylor Walker, Tom Lynch and Jake Kelly also free agents this season.

The Gold Coast Suns have seen gettable senior figures from across the league as a high desire to aid their recent struggles, with former Crows forward Andrew Jarman suggesting Talia would be a good fit for the Queensland club.

"They need senior players. They don’t need any more young players," Jarman told Triple M Adelaide.

"Daniel Talia would be the first one on my list.

Last year, Essendon were linked to Talia, and could perhaps be once again.

The Bombers could look to boost their defensive stocks, to compliment the addition of Nick Hind and shift of Jayden Laverde to defence, as Michael Hurley's ongoing hip injury grows further concerns over his future in the league.

Talia may be the perfect addition to a rebuilding young Bombers side that could use some seniority and leadership for the next few years.

Talia is also close to Dons coach Ben Rutten, who both played together at Adelaide between 2011-2014.
