The Dockers are building nicely for the future, and have a few promising victories in season 2021 under their belt which will give all involved a lot of confidence
However, there are still some missing cogs in the system which need to be addressed, and these will most likely be filled by dipping into the market and splashing some cash.
We continue our ‘Five trade targets for every club’ series with Fremantle. The idea of these stories is to identify potentially gettable targets who could fill roles, not just link every club to the likes of Marcus Bontempelli and Patrick Cripps.
In no particular order, here are five players which the Dockers recruitment team would do well to target and potentially poach.
2. Jason Johannisen
The Doggies defender has been so-so over the last couple of years, but has stringed together some consistent game time again in season 2021. With a great turn of pace about him as well as a thumping kick, Johannisen would be a fantastic asset for Justin Longmuir's side.

His averages are solid for a man of his position, running at 82.7% disposal efficiency and 78.2% by foot. His distribution would be valuable for Fremantle, and would provide some great run out of defence.
Hailing from WA too, there is a large chance that he could be lured back home to play for the Dockers.
