The Eagles have just endured one of their worst ever seasons, something the historically successful club will be desperate to correct. The club finds itself at a crossroads though, having competed in finals for years, their descent was as quick as it was surprising.
There's no doubting COVID and injuries absolutely destroyed their start to the season and from there it was impossible to recover. However, there are some worrying signs at West Coast, particularly with some star players.
Legendary forward Josh Kennedy has called time, while the end is surely not far away for Shannon Hurn, Luke Shuey and Jeremy McGovern. These names will be almost impossible to replace quickly, but it's the task the Eagles face.
The Eagles will likely look to add depth in the key position areas, while a small forward or outside midfielder wouldn't go astray either.
With that in mind, let's take a look at five possible targets for West Coast this off-season.
2. Mitch Georgiades
This could be an interesting one to watch. With Junior Rioli having signalled his desire to be traded to Port Adelaide to be closer to family, the Eagles are going to want something significant in return.
Despite being from Western Australia, Georgiades reportedly has no interest in leaving the Power. That won't stop the Eagles from asking for him though. Kennedy's departure will increase the pressure on Jack Darling and youngster Oscar Allen, a foil could be exactly what they need.
With Georgiades' ability to mark on the lead and average of just over a goal a game in 2022, he would be a welcome addition to a forward line under pressure to perform in 2023.
All of that said, a deal will be very difficult to complete, as both clubs are reluctant to lose a player they value highly.
