Essendon has emerged as a potential candidate for Tyson Stengle.
According to AFL Media reporter Cal Twomey, the Bombers will look to Stengle as an option to increase their small-term stocks.
It comes after Geelong confirmed his interest in the former Richmond and Adelaide forward.
“We think he had a great time at Woodville-West Torrens, on a premiership team,” said Cats list manager Stephen Wells. SEN Mornings.
“We are interested in Tyson. We haven’t committed to him yet, it’s not just us who want him.
“He will have to make that decision himself.”
The 22-year-old has scored 44 goals for the Eagles in the SANFL this season, including three majors in Sunday’s Grand Final win over Glenelg.
‘He (Stengle) likes Geelong, doesn’t he? They have definitely shown an interest,” Twomey told AFL Trade Radio’s Trade Show.
“There are other clubs looking at him because he’s coming for free, he’s a delisted free agent, you don’t have to go through the drafting process to get him.
“Essendon, as I understand, is another club that will be looking at Tyson Stengle. That makes sense.
“You look at the Essendon list, Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti was in the best form of career for the first half of the season, dropped out, there is no other pure little attacker on that list.
“Obviously there is a lot of confidence that he will come back to his best, but they still need some backup there and some smarts.
“This is an opportunity for him (Stengle) to do another AFL shot, and the Bombers would be in the mix for that.”
Stengle is looking to join a third AFL club after parting ways with the Crows earlier this year after three off-field indiscretions.
