West Coast have reportedly set their sights on luring St Kilda ruckman Tom Hickey to Western Australia, as the Eagles look to bolster their ruck stocks for the 2019 season.

Nic Naitanui will miss most of the season after suffering his second ACL injury against Collingwood in Round 17, while current ruckman Scott Lycett is more than likely out the door, with Port Adelaide his preferred destination. understand the Eagles want to bring Hickey over on a multi-year deal.

Hickey played 13 matches for the Saints during the 2018 season, and has played 67 for the club since joining St Kilda from the Gold Coast at the end of the 2012 campaign.

Fox Footy believe Hickey is one of a number of Saints who are being courted by rival clubs, although Jack Steven will not be dealt to Geelong, and Jack Billings will almost certainly be at the club next season.
