Crouch will become a restricted free agent at the end of the season, meaning Adelaide has the right to match any offer he receives.
However, the Crows would likely give the 26-year old their blessing to move elsewhere as they conduct a rebuild.
If the Power’s deal is strong enough, the Crows could receive Pick 2 as compensation for his departure to bundle with their Pick 1.
“Crouch’s future has been a talking point all season and in the biggest sign yet he won[’t be at West Lakes next year, it is understood his management and his camp is considering or open to offers to join Port Adelaide,” reporter Theo Doropoulos said.
“Crouch is a restricted free agent and he has consistently said he wants to stay a Crow but given his injury history, the club won’t give him the five-year deal he has been chasing.
“It has forced him to look elsewhere. The 26-year-old loves living in Adelaide and would prefer to stay and a move across to Alberton makes sense for the star midfielder.
“It would give the Crows another first round pick they desperately want.”
Crouch has been sidelined since Round 8 with a hamstring injury but could return in the next fortnight.
He is averaging 20.2 disposals and 4.6 clearances from eight games this season.
