Emerging Tiger Liam Baker is weighing up his playing future as a number of clubs circle, including Carlton and Fremantle.

As reported by AFL.com.au, Richmond have offered the 21-year old a two-year deal, but he is keen to play regular senior footy and unsure if he has a future at Punt Road.

He returned to the senior team last week after a three-game stint in the VFL, getting used in defence given the club’s depth up forward, where Baker is best utilised.

The youngster enjoyed a 10-match run in the Tigers’ AFL team earlier in the year where he produced consistent form, including a career outing against Essendon, tallying 24 disposals, nine tackles and a goal.

The 173m utility is averaging 17.9 disposals, 4.4 tackles and 4.6 score involvements this season.

Originally from Western Australia, Baker was drafted by the Tigers with Pick No. 18 in the 2017 rookie draft after getting overlooked the previous year, spending a season for Subiaco in the WAFL.
