Gold Coast Titans coach Neil Henry has confirmed the Queensland club will attempt to lure Manly Sea-Eagles star Daly Cherry-Evans at the end of the 2015 NRL season.
Cherry-Evans comes off contract at the end of the season and a number of clubs are believed to be interested in offering lucrative deals to the 25-year-old.
The Titans are reportedly set to table a $3 million three-year deal for the Manly star, who has refused to rule out leaving the Sea Eagles.
Henry says the Titans have not yet made an official offer to Evans, but he says he is “certainly worth looking at.”
“Being a Queenslander and State of Origin player, certainly the club would look at trying to move him up here,” Henry is quoted as saying by AAP.
“He would be tremendous for us. He’s certainly an experienced player now. He’s got great leadership and he can get a team around the park.
“He’s certainly worth looking at. Whether or not we can table an offer that his management are going to be happy with remains to be seen.”
Henry has held talks with Evans’ management, but admits the Titans are in competition with a number of clubs.
“They’ve (talks) been as encouraging as they can be,” he said.
“He’s got a number of clubs interested in him.
“Not sure of the timeframe for his decision – we’d like a resolution to it but, at the same time, we’ve got our halves here.”
“We need to get on with our season but, in the background, we can do some negotiations.”
The Canterbury Bulldogs and Parramatta Eels are also belived to be frontrunners in the chase for Evans’ signature.
