Freo not just after Travis
Fremantle is set to launch an audacious bid on free agents across the league.
Speaking on radio on Saturday, Fremantle chief executive Steve Rosich declared the club an attractive destination for the competition’s stars.
Rosich told Crocmedia’s AFL Live the club was not only targeting Collingwood star Travis Cloke.
“We need to keep adding to our list, more quality all across the ground and if that includes a key forward and some midfielders, well, fantastic,” Rosich said
“We’ve been talking to a select number of players that are eligible for free agency.”
Cloke remains at the top of the club’s wishlist, with the club reportedly offering the out-of-contract Magpie forward $1 million-a-season over five seasons.
“We have spoken to Travis’ management and he’s one of a few players we’ve spoken to.”
Rosich said the club had prepared itself diligently for the “the new regime” of free agency.
“We think we’re well placed in free agency, not only to potentially acquire a player, but also retain our required players,” he said.
“We’re a growing football club, we aim to be a premiership winning football club and we’ve got a compelling case for quality players to join our football club.”
Fremantle is benefiting from undergoing a distinct transition in the way it is run, according to Rosich.
“The last four years have been a significant period of change for our football club, and they needed to be,” he said.
“Our aim is to be a premiership club and we’re putting the bricks and mortar in place to achieve that.
“We’re leaving no stone unturned to ensure we continue to improve as a football club, you have to. It’s an enormously challenging and competitive competition and we want to be at the forefront.”
