Richmond may be attempting to secure Crows midfielder Brad Crouch in this year’s trade period, according to Herald Sun journalist Sam Edmund.

Speaking on SEN, Edmund said the Tigers are very keen on the injury hit Crow, who did not play a single game in 2018 after a breakout season in 2017.

Brad Crouch is another name that keeps coming up in conversation,” Edmund said.

“The Adelaide midfielder, injury riddled it must be said, hasn’t played at all this year, but there are whispers around him perhaps being on the move this off-season as well.

“I’ve heard the Tigers might have an interest for Brad Crouch.”

Essendon champion Tim Watson said it would be a great off-season for the 2017 premiers if they landed Crouch and are expected to sign Tom Lynch once free agency opens.

“They’re going to land Tom Lynch and if they were to land somebody like Brad Crouch in the off-season as well, they’ve done very well,” Watson said.

Crouch has played 61 games for the Crows since joining the club in 2013, with his last AFL game coming against Richmond in the 2017 Grand Final.
