AFL.com.au is reporting that Melbourne is among a number of clubs circling the 22-year-old, who impressed in 13 appearances for the Magpies in 2018, averaging 21 disposals per game before having his year derailed by a positive test for cocaine on game-day late in the season.
Under the terms of his sanction, he can resume playing in time for next year’s Marsh Community Series, and will be able to train in a professional environment later this month, which will allow him to complete close to a full pre-season.
The interest in Murray continues a busy off-season for Melbourne, which is looking to add pace to its list following a horror 17th-place finish in 2019.
The Demons added ex-Docker Ed Langdon via trade last month in an attempt to address this deficiency, and adding Murray, likely as a rookie, would be another step in that quest.
The Demons are also believed to be in the mix for injury-plagued midfielder Harley Bennell.
