Fremantle football manager Chris Bond said today the club is weighing up moves for tall forwards James Podsiadly and Scott Gumbleton.
Bond told the AFL.com.au's Trade Radio the team was lacking depth in that area and that the Dockers had not ruled out trading for both key position players.
Geelong premiership winner Podsiadly is 32 but Bond said that wouldn't prevent them from moving for him.
"The feedback we're getting is James is really keen to continue his career and really keen to strive to get another premiership under his belt, and hopefully we're a club he can see that in," Bond said.
"The feedback has just been glowing on him. As a person, the way he handles himself and it's a great story, he waited 10 years to play his first game."
West Aussie Gumbleton, 25, has been savaged by injuries and played just 32 games in seven seasons at Essendon. Bond said the Dockers would soon be speaking to his manager Paul Connors.
"We all know his story, a high draft pick a number of years ago and it's been quite tragic what's happened to him," Bond said.
"His resilience has been outstanding to fight his way back. We'll continue with our due diligence and we already know from last year he's a quality person as well.
"Either of those two (Podsiadly or Gumbleton), if it was to eventuate, has to be desperate to play, and keep doing everything they can to improve our club."
Bond said there would be no move for Sydney's Jesse White, with Collingwood set to pick up the forward.
Freo are also keen on Hawthorn Xavier Ellis.
