The West Coast Eagles have announced its interest in Geelong utility Travis Varcoe as the AFL trade period heats up.
Varcoe has played 138 games for Geelong and won two premiership since making his debut in 2007.
Eagles football operations manager Craig Vozzo told Fairfax Media that the 26-year-old was the club’s main target this trade period.
“We have an interest in him,” Vozzo said.
“We’ve spoken to him and his management and we’ve spoken to Geelong.
“Travis has to make a decision that it is an option that he’d like to explore because he’s a contracted player at Geelong.
“His ability to run and his flexibility of role we think would help us. He’s a player who can play as a high half-forward, a wing and potentially as a half-back.”
Varcoe would add some much-needed pace into an Eagles side that missed out on finals football in 2014.
