It has been suggested that contracted Tiger Ivan Soldo is eager to be traded to Port Adelaide, less than two weeks after the Power list boss Chris Davies announced the club is "more than open" to welcoming the ruckman at Alberton.

This news comes a year on from Richmond floating the idea of moving Soldo to GWS in the deal for Tim Taranto and Jacob Hopper.

The club have now switched gears and believe he is a required player at Richmond, potentially forcing Soldo and his management to demand a trade.

According to SEN's Tom Morris, Soldo's party is pushing for a move despite his contract status, with Richmond offering resistance.

The 204cm 27-year-old premiership player from 2019 is seeking a primary ruck role which is currently occupied by Richmond captain Toby Nankervis, and potentially taken by young athletic tall Samson Ryan in the near future.

Port Adelaide's ruck spot has been ever-changing in recent years, with all of Scott Lycett, Sam Hayes, Brynn Teakle and Dante Visentini earning a game-day gig on occasion.

Soldo would probably take the number one ruck mantle, despite the likely inclusion of 205cm Jordon Sweet from the Western Bulldogs also.

With Port Adelaide already deep into negotiations for Esava Ratugolea and Brandon Zerk-Thatcher, Chris Davies will be looking to move quickly on deals for the two incoming ruckman before deciding on a final call for wantaway winger Xavier Duursma before the trade period closes in less than three days' time.

The Power currently hold picks 25, 41, 49 and 76 in the upcoming National Draft but are likely to lose their opening pick in the play for Ratugolea.

Believing they are in the premiership window entering 2024, they may be prepared to let go of the remaining picks to finalise the rest of their off-season moves.

We can expect Richmond to initially ask for more than Pick 41 if that's what the Power choose to offer, meaning we could be in for another tense trade period stand-off involving Port Adelaide.
