Kangaroos list manager Glenn Luff recently stated it would take a "pretty attractive" offer for the club to part with their top selection, while football boss Brady Rawlings told SEN that North Melbourne will listen to bids from other clubs for Pick 1.

“Obviously when you’ve got pick one and obviously this year has got a couple of guys up the top end that are of extreme talent, clubs are going to come for them,” he said.

“There’s been a few offers for that pick. Once you get to this point of the year you can attribute the pick to a player now, so it becomes even more valuable.

“We listen to every offer that comes our way, but it’s going to take a lot of currency to get this one.”

The Kangaroos currently hold Picks 20, 42, 47, 72 and 77 to go along with Pick 1 ahead of the 2021 Draft.
