REPORTS: Dockers to pursue big-money moves for two stars

Fremantle are reportedly set to court West Coast defender Jeremy McGovern and Melbourne forward Jesse Hogan when the pair come out of contract.

McGovern, who currently plays for the Eagles, Fremantle’s WA rivals, is one of the biggest fish in the free agency pond at the end of the 2018 season.

Foxfooty.com.au believe the Dockers are after McGovern, but they also confirmed the club are as interested in recruiting Hogan at the end of the 2019 season.

Both players were born in Western Australia, with Fremantle hopeful of bringing Hogan back home.

Sources at Fremantle close to Fox Footy believe the Dockers can afford to sign both players, with the club looking at building a premiership side around star captain Nat Fyfe and veteran coach Ross Lyon.

McGovern is 26 years of age while Hogan is just 23, meaning the pair would both move to Fremantle in their primes should the Dockers get their signatures.

Fox Footy can also reveal the Dockers are keeping tabs on Melbourne youngster Angus Brayshaw, given he seems to be out of favour at the Demons.

Brayshaw missed the opening three games based on selection and not through injury, although he did return to Melbourne’s line up in their loss to Hawthorn on Sunday.

If the 22-year-old was to move to WA, he would join his two brother Hamish (West Coast) and Andrew (Fremantle) at WA clubs.

Despite Hogan not coming out of contract until the end of the 2019 season, the Dockers believe he would be open to a move back to his home state.
