Essendon headline a list of clubs circling premiership Tiger Jack Graham, reports The Age’s Jake Niall.

The Bombers are looking to beef up their inside midfield stocks, with Graham fitting the bill for their needs.

He would compliment the likes of Zach Merrett, Dylan Shiel, Darcy Parish and Andrew McGrath.

Graham has links to Essendon, with incoming coach Ben Rutten, assistant Blake Caracella and football boss Dan Richardson all previously working at Richmond.

The Crows are also reportedly reportedly showing interest in the out-of-contract midfielder.

Graham hails from North Adelaide in the SANFL and the Crows could be best positioned to launch a bid at the onballer given their salary cap space and expected number of spots on their list.

Graham booted three goals in Richmond’s 2017 Grand Final win in just his fifth AFL game, but missed out on last year’s triumph due to a shoulder injury.

The 22-year old has played seven of the Tigers’ 12 matches this season and could seek more permanent senior opportunities elsewhere.

He has averaged 12.4 disposals and 4.7 tackles per contest in 2020.
