Negotiations between Fremantle and Melbourne in regards to Luke Jackson's desired move west are ramping up, with the Demons having their eyes on three early selections in exchange for their premiership tall.

The Dockers are searching for a substantial package to please Melbourne, who have set lofty demands as they come to terms with losing their young star.

Fremantle's earliest selection for this year's draft currently falls at Pick 13, with that selection to be paired with their own future first-round selection at the centre of discussions with the Demons.

But Melbourne are understood to be asking for more in return for the former third overall pick, who has proven his worth at AFL level and is expected to gain a sizeable pay packet should he don purple from 2023.

In the latest update on the negotiations between the Dockers and Demons, the latter are said to be eyeing the second-round selection Fremantle obtained in their recent trade with North Melbourne that saw Griffin Logue and Darcy Tucker join the Kangaroos, according to 7 News' Tom Browne.

That selection was given to the Roos as assistance from the AFL, and could fall as early as Pick 20 at next year's National Draft should the Roos again face another tough season.

Adding that pick into the equation would mean a trio of top 20 selections could land with the Demons in exchange for Jackson, with the Dockers potentially seeking a selection from Melbourne coming their way along with Jackson.

After Pick 13, the Dockers' next highest selection comes at Pick 76, while they also gained a future third-round pick from the Kangaroos in the aforementioned deal, which is also an AFL assistance selection.
