West Coast free agent Elliot Yeo could potentially pocket as much as $1.3 million in a single season as a rival club is reportedly at "the front of the queue" for the Eagles midfielder.

Clubs are said to be "strongly pursuing" Yeo's services given his recent return to starring form in the first half of this year and his free agency tag.

Yeo polled MVP votes in a four-game run between Rounds 4-7, with the 30-year-old playing at the level that saw him earn multiple All-Australian and best and fairest honours at the peak of his career.

The Eagles have had an offer on the table for Yeo for some time, however that deal was lodged prior to the onballer's stunning purple patch.

Currently sidelined with a groin issue, injury concerns - which have been constant for Yeo over the past several seasons - are sure to play a part in how the Eagles, and other clubs, value the East Fremantle product.

According to Triple M's Ryan Daniels, the Eagles' offer was "very below-market" for Yeo, with a revised offer reportedly seeing the value drop further.

West Coast are said to have offered a two-year contract to Yeo, which is said to have struggled in progressing negotiations.

"Here's where it's at. There was a conversation early in the year between West Coast and his representation, and there was an offer put to the table to have a look at. Now that offer has not moved since then," Daniels told Triple M on Monday.

"It was a very below-market offer for Elliot Yeo, I would say. Based on the fact he has been injured for quite a while and that there's risk involved in that for West Coast. So that offer has been sitting there for a while and he's been playing out of his mind, so the value for Elliot Yeo is going up.

"That West Coast contract deal would've been a two-year offer and on less money than what he's been on for the last few years.

"My understanding is that [West Coast] did pull their offer back at one stage and it came back with maybe less than what was initially on there. I don't thin k that helped the situation."

Daniels has suggested Adelaide, who were keen on Yeo last year, are the frontrunners for Yeo should he look to depart Laithlain Park this year.

It is reported that the Crows are weighing up a three-year deal for Yeo, which could include a season where he earns in the range of $1.3 million, while the other two years are of lesser value.

The total deal could tally close to $3 million, with Yeo now less of a certainty to stay at West Coast in the eyes of Daniels.

"The offers have now started flooding in from elsewhere. There's multiple East Coast-based clubs that are very, very keen on Elliot Yeo. Super keen," Daniels added.

"There are a number of [clubs] interested. One of them would be the Adelaide Crows. They are at the front of the queue. They were into Elliot Yeo last year, now they're really into Elliot Yeo.

"They want to give him three years, which is obviously more than West Coast. The numbers are significant... one of the years, maybe the first year, is a significant number. You'd be close to the mark with 1.3 (million dollars), maybe even slightly higher than that.

"That's not every year, but it is a big significant part of the deal. You're looking at maybe three years and just slightly under $3 million over the course of that contract.

"I don't think it's a certainty that he stays at West Coast now."

Adelaide have recently flagged their ambition to be "aggressive" come the free agency and trade period, with the club having fallen short on targets Clayton Oliver and Harrison Petty last year, while reports have suggested the South Australian club offered Sydney star Errol Gulden a decade-long deal before he re-signed with the Swans.

Yeo has played 200 AFL games, having started his career with Brisbane in 2012 before returning to his home state two years later.

The explosive midfielder is one of six free agents at the Eagles this year, with captain Liam Duggan, Andrew Gaff, Jamaine Jones, Josh Rotham and Zane Trew also able to exercise their rights at free agency this off-season.
