The Age reports the Demons are currently assessing their salary cap to find room to make a bid for the 26-year-old wingman.
Hill, who is under-contract at the Dockers for another two-years, is viewed as a reachable target, with his partner reportedly keen on a return to Victoria.
St Kilda has already made an approach to Hill’s management and have a sizeable amount of cap space available to lure Hill, who is valued at around $800,000 a year. Geelong is also in the hunt for the former Hawthorn premiership player, but will only make a move if Tim Kelly asks to leave.
Hill has played all 18 games for Fremantle in 2019 and is potentially in the running for his second best-and-fairest award, with his elite pace and ball movement garnering interest from rival clubs.
The Dockers, however, have made it clear that Hill is not on the trade table.
Melbourne have already signalled their interest in Hill’s teammate and Victorian native, Ed Langdon, who will be a free agent at season’s end.
Brad’s brother Stephen has also been linked with a move away from Fremantle, with the 29-year-old out of contract at the end of the year.
