Adelaide reportedly enters the race for Steven Motlop

Geelong’s Steven Motlop looks increasingly likely to be on his way out of the Cattery after another indifferent season.

Thus far, the Gold Coast Suns and Port Adelaide have both shown considerable interest in the inconsistent forward, however, a third club is now said to be in the race in a big way.

The Adelaide Crows have thrown their hat in the ring for the 26-year-old, who kicked 22 goals this season, according for Kane Cornes.

“The Adelaide Football Club are coming hard with a huge financial offer for Steven Motlop,” the former Port player told AFL Trade Radio on Friday afternoon.

“Motlop is set to meet with the Crows over the weekend. He’ll also be in town visiting Port Adelaide this afternoon before their best and fairest.

“So I’m thinking it’s down to two now, it’s either Port Adelaide or its Adelaide and the fact the Crows have lost Jake Lever and concerns they may also lose Charlie Cameron have placed a significant financial offer in front of Steven Motlop and they are coming hard to try to secure the Geelong free agent.”

Motlop has played a total of 135 games and kicked 175 goals for Geelong, but the Cats appear to have lost patience with the former No.39 draft pick.
