The Herald Sun reports that the legal action could be linked to the controversial supplements program, however the player has requested his name be kept secret during the trial.
The AFL Anti-Doping tribunal is set to hand down its findings on the 34 past and present Essendon players at the end of the month.
The allegations date back to 2012 following the alleged use of a banned peptide by players under the guidance of sports scientist Steven Dank.
As a result, Essendon were banned from the 2013 finals series and were fined $2 million.
Coach James Hird was handed a 12-month suspension and missed the entire 2014 season.
