Edmund reports that the Bombers have made enquiries with De Goey’s dad and acting manager Roger.
The gun forward is out-of-contract at the end of the season but is not yet eligible for free agency, meaning a trade would have to be made to acquire him.
Speaking on SEN Breakfast, Edmund reports that while he believes De Goey is likely to stay at the Pies, Essendon are doing their due diligence with off-season targets.
“There’s a lot of spitballing at the moment but they (Essendon) have asked about one particular high-profile player,” he said on SEN Breakfast.
“I don’t think anyone thinks he’s going to go anywhere but Essendon has raised their interest with Jordan De Goey’s old man, because Roger is his manager at the moment.
“They’ve come knocking for Jordan De Goey, Essendon.
“Is this just asking the question? Probably.
“The (trade) whiteboard on every club, if they are any good, is deep with multiple names.
“But they have asked the question with Jordan De Goey just to test the waters.
“We are all pretty sure he’s going to stay with Darcy Moore but it hasn’t stopped Essendon, and I’m sure others, asking the question.”
The 24-year old returned from a two-month absence in Monday night’s win over Gold Coast, booting a game-high four goals.
He has averaged 15 disposals from seven senior games this season and kicked 11 majors.
With Collingwood managing a tight salary cap, locking them all away will prove to be a difficult task.
