The Cats are considering making a play for Swans speedster Gary Rohan, according to a report by The Age.

Geelong have contacted Rohan’s management but are yet to speak to the 27-year old directly, and are currently weighing up their options.

The forward is contracted at Sydney until the end of 2020 but is reportedly open to a return to Victoria, originally drafted from the Geelong Falcons U19s.

It could give the Swans with salary cap flexibility moving forward as they prepare for life without midfield midfield Dan Hannebery, opening up significant finances for the club to attack the free agent market with.

The Cats currently hold pick 11 and two-third round picks in the draft, and it is unknown if Rohan would fit into the profile of their list moving forward.

But a player like Rohan could help them establish more forward pressure, something they have been glaringly lacking in recent times.

Cats CEO Brian Cook said on Monday that the club needed to assess their list-management strategy after being bounced out of the finals by Melbourne in the opening week.

‘‘We have to decide whether we continue to do both [trade and draft] or err on the side of one more than the other, or go back to simply drafting kids,’’ Cook told SEN.
