After being heavily linked to a move to Kardinia Park last year, the Cats are again looking to bring in experienced talent according to the Herald Sun.
Chris Scott’s Cats sit amongst the league’s premiership favourites this season once again, but have not made the Grand Final since his first season in 2011.
Higgins last year, spurned an offer to join the Cats to sign a two-year contract that expires at the end of 2021, but the Herald Sun reports that the Cats remain keen to acquire the 32-year old.

He has spent a lot of time on the wing for the Roos this year, as opposed to being in the midfield, where he has thrived and played some of his best football throughout his career.
Given where North Melbourne are at and their intentions to blow the list up and rebuild from the ground up, this is an interesting spot to be in and the Cats sense that he could be available for the right price.
Geelong have three first-round picks in this year’s draft, having acquired one from West Coast in the trade period last year and having done a deal on draft night with the Gold Coast Suns to acquire their mid-first round pick that was handed to them by the AFL last year.
It’ll be unlikely that the Cats land everyone, but Crouch has been long linked to the Cats and still remains the front-runners to land the out-of-contract Crow.
