Richmond have officially made an offer for Gold Coast co-captain Tom Lynch.
Lynch is a restricted free agent and as such the Suns have three days to match the Tigers’ offer.
However, it’s very rare for a club to match an offer for a restricted free agent, meaning it’s very likely that Lynch will wind up at Punt Road by next week.
Lynch nominated Richmond as his club of choice this week after eight seasons with the Suns.
The 25-year-old played 131 games and kicked 254 goals for Gold Coast.
He made the All-Australian team in 2016 and is a two-time best-and-fairest winner.
