Crouch, who attracted interest from Gold coast last year, is currently out of contract and will be an unrestricted free agent at season’s end.
“We know he (Crouch) shopped himself around at the end of last year,” Cornes told SEN’s Footy SA and WA.
“Adelaide are in the situation where they are not going to challenge in his prime. He’s 26 years of age, (the) Crows aren’t going to be around the mark you would think for four-to-five years.
Former St Kilda coach Scott Watters feels Crouch is on “shaky ground”
“I can’t see them (Adelaide) being in the premiership hunt this year,” Watters said.
“I think he is on shaky ground at the moment. He’s not as pivotal as a Josh Kennedy (West Coast) to their structure. I think that makes him a little bit vulnerable.”
Crouch had a career best season in 2019, averaging over 30 disposals a game and winning his first best and fairest award.
