Out-of-contract Cat Daniel Menzel is being targeted by St Kilda, as reported by Fox Sports’ Tom Morris.

The Saints have made a pitch to the 26-year old’s manager Adam Ramanauskas, but no formal offer has been tabled yet.

Menzel’s preference is to remain in Geelong, who are offering a one-year deal, but a long-term offer from a rival club could entice him to leave the Cattery.

Menzel adds to a growing list of players being linked to St Kilda, including Dan Hannebery, Scott Lycett, Jared Polec, Andrew Gaff.

The injury-prone forward comes with significant risk attached given how much footy he has missed, having only played 10 games this season due to a groin complaint.

Fox Sports is reporting that Menzel is on a salary of approximately $180,000 in 2018, considerably less than the average AFL wage of $371,000 this season.
