Following the news that Adelaide and Daniel Talia will go their separate ways at season's end, it's likely that a number of AFL clubs are sure to ask the question of his services for next year.

A two-time All-Australian and Malcolm Blight medallist, Talia would offer any keen suitor the duty of a formidable key defender, a void several clubs will be looking to fill this off-season.

With this in mind, we've named FIVE potential landing spots for the departing Adelaide backman.

The Bombers have surprised many in being closer to impacting the September action than first thought, with Ben Rutten now looking to build on an impressive young list.

While development to their promising young guns is key for Essendon's future success, there remains to be some fine tuning required to take the next few steps in their push for a flag.

In doing so, adding some ready-made talent to key positions is sure to be in the mind of Rutten and Adrian Dodoro this off-season.

With Talia now up for grabs to rival clubs, the Bombers could rekindle their previous reported interest in the dual All-Australian defender as an asset for the club over the next several seasons.

With Michael Hurley tied to the sidelines and the future of Cale Hooker looking unclear, Talia firms as a suitable and cheap option for the Bombers to bolster their key-position stocks.
