Essendon tall Michael Hurley is reportedly weighing up his future, with Adelaide looming as a possible destination for the 25-year-old.

The Advertiser has reported that Hurley, who is contracted with the Bombers until the end of 2017, was in South Australia last week and had breakfast with Josh Jenkins and Tom Lynch in Glenelg.

Adelaide is reportedly aggressively targeting Hurley, who was last year named at centre-half back in the All-Australia side.

Despite Hurley being contracted for 2017, he could leave the Bombers under the AFL’s grievance policy.

Hurley has played 119 games with the club since being selected with pick No.5 in the 2008 National Draft.
