Port Adelaide wingman Karl Amon will have plenty of possible destinations should he choose to leave Alberton at the end of the season, with four clubs identified as potential suitors.

The 26-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent if he chooses not to re-sign with the Power and return to Victoria, meaning Amon will get to select the club of his choice to continue his career at.

According to the Herald Sun's Jon Ralph, Hawthorn have emerged as a strong early favourite to secure Amon's signature, with St Kilda, Carlton, and Melbourne also in the running.

Despite early interest, Essendon have reportedly withdrawn their interest in the left-footer and are out of the race.

Amon, who was named in last year's 40-man All-Australian squad, has been linked to a bumper deal in the region of $650,000 per season over five years, with the Power likely to receive first-round compensation in the event of his departure.

Amon has put off contract talks with the Power until the end of the season, but the club have begun to concede a departure is looking likely with Amon showing no indication of a desire to remain in South Australia.

Last week, Port Adelaide football boss Chris Davies admitted  on SEN SA that "the longer it goes on, less likely it is" that Amon remains at the Power.

Amon has backed up his impressive 2021 season, with a strong 2022 where he averages 23.4 disposals, 4.5 tackles and ranks elite in metres gained, despite a shaky start to the season for both himself and the Power.
