FREMANTLE and Gold Coast are on the verge of a deal that will see the Dockers secure midfielder Will Brodie and pick 19 from the Suns.
The Suns had been in talks with Melbourne and North Melbourne about offloading their pick 19 due to their tight list this year and buying into next year's draft, with Brodie set to be a part of the deal as the Dockers absorb his 2022 contract.
A swap of future picks is also likely in a move that could unlock Fremantle's move for Jordan Clark and its big-time deal with Adam Cerra and Carlton.

After expressing interest in Gold Coast's pick 19, Melbourne is set to get involved in its own four-way mega picks swap with the Western Bulldogs, Adelaide and St Kilda.
That deal will see the Bulldogs trade out pick 17 for more points to secure father-son prospect Sam Darcy, with the Dogs set to hold picks 23, 44 and 45.
Melbourne will buy back into the early stages of this year's draft by trading out its future first-round pick to secure pick 17 from the Dogs.
The four-way deal will also see the Demons end with a draft hand of 17, 37 and 49, while the Crows will now have two first-round picks in 2022 as well as picks 33 and 75 in this year's pool.

St Kilda is also involved in the deal to strengthen its draft hand, trading in picks 62, 66 and a fourth-rounder tied to Adelaide's ladder position next year.
