Port Adelaide are looking to bolster its ruckman stocks by signing Lycett.
Current ladder-leaders Port Adelaide are believed to be leading the chase for out-of-contract West Coast Eagles midfield Scott Lycett.
AFL.com.au are reporting that Port have Lycett as its number one target for the off-season as the club looks to bolster its ruck options.
Lycett’s two-year contract expires at the end of 2014, with the 21-year-old struggling to cement a spot in front of gun pair Dean Cox and Nic Naitanui.
He has played the last two matches for the Eagles due to Cox’s injury, however it looks like he will be on the outer yet again when Cox returns.
Lycett was recruited from the Port Adelaide Magpies in 2010 and would lessen Port’s reliance on Matthew Lobbe.
The South Australian was drafted by West Coast in 2011 and has since played 15 matches, kicking nine goals.
