North Melbourne is the best landing spot for out-of-contract Fremantle midfielder Adam Cerra, according to Matt Rendell.

The midfielder, who was taken with the fifth pick in the 2017 AFL draft, and has since gone on to play over 50 games at the Dockers, is out of contract at the end of the season. He has been reportedly been mulling over a move home to Victoria.

The experienced AFL recruiter told SEN Radio that he is of the belief that Cerra would be an excellent addition to the Kangaroos' midfield, who have struggled badly throughout the season.

"You need to pay a big quid to get him out for a start … I would be going to North", Rendell said.

"In two or three years, they're going to be awesome if they can keep all of their players.

"Ben Cunnington's got a couple of years left tops, they've got Luke Davies-Uniacke who's young, they've got Jy Simpkin, Jaidyn Stephenson, Tarryn Thomas in the midfield. Will Phillips and Charlie Lazzaro.

"Phillips is going to be a gun, trust me. His under 18s, he got from contest to contest as good as Matt Rowell and was a year younger. Give him a year or two.

“I think they’re going to have a super midfield here. I think they have a really good blend of in and out mids and I think Cerra could slot in beautifully.

"I suspect it won't be next year, possibly the year after they'll challenge for the eight and the year after definitely in the eight".

The 21-year-old has played in 15 of a possible 18 games this season for Fremantle, averaging 22.5 disposals and five marks, which both sit as career highs.

Carlton, Richmond, Hawthorn and Essendon have all been rumoured to be interested in acquiring Cerra's services, according to The Herald Sun.

It's unclear which way Cerra would lean should he receive multiple offers, however, it can be assumed his return home is likely to happen.

Fremantle currently sit 11th on the table and in the running to play finals footy.
