Fremantle has identified Adelaide forward Elliott Himmelberg as a potential trade target, according to SEN SA’s Michelangelo Rucci.
The 24-year-old, who comes out of contract at season’s end, made his first AFL appearance since Round 9 last week.
Himmelberg replaced the injured Riley Thilthorpe for the Crows’ upset win over Carlton, finishing with eight disposals and a goal.
The Crows tall kicked four goals twice against Port Adelaide and Richmond earlier this year before losing his place ahead of Round 10.
Rucci understands the Dockers are doing their due diligence on Himmelberg.

“Fremantle are putting together their list of how they overcome the issues of what they’ve got in attack, or don’t have in attack,” Rucci told SEN SA’s The Run Home.
“The player that they’re identifying – I stress identifying, they’re doing their due diligence – is Elliott Himmelberg at Adelaide.
“They think he’s the fit for them.
“He’s had five years at Adelaide, 37 games, 38 goals. We know he’s a tall player who can play forward and ruck – they want him as a forward. They desperately need to shore up their attack.
“He is growing with interest at Fremantle.”
Himmelberg was selected by Adelaide with pick 51 in the 2016 National Draft.
