With Melbourne set to be a big player in the upcoming trade period, AFL.com.au's Cal Twomey has identified forward Alex Neal-Bullen as a player to potentially make way for new additions.

The 25-year old has been inconsistent in the past two seasons, finding himself in and out of the Demons side after a breakout 2018 season which saw him play all 25 games, including three finals.

The medium-sized forward was also suspended for four games this season for a controversial sling tackle on Adelaide defender Will Hamill.

In a video on AFL.com.au, Twomey reported that Melbourne have had internal talks on making the 25-year old available to rival clubs.

"A player to watch in this year's trade period is Alex Neal-Bullen. He's a player who does have some currency."

"He's contracted to the Demons until the end of 2021, so one more year to go, but his name has been raised in club discussions."

Melbourne have been linked to multiple players, including Essendon duo Adam Saad and Joe Daniher and high-priced North Melbourne midfielder Jared Polec and if these moves are to be made Twomey says room must be made on the list.

"He's (Neal-Bullen) a chance to be moved, we'll wait and see how that one goes. It's a move obviously to get players in, you have to move players out."
