Roosters Forward Kane Evans is believed to have at least four NRL clubs chasing his signature for the 2018 season.
Evans, 25, extended his contract for a further 3 years in 2014, keeping him at the Roosters until the end of the 2017 season.
As he enters the final year of his contract, the Roosters are looking to free up some cash so they can lure Wests Tigers fullback James Tedesco to the club and Evans maybe sacaficed by the Rooster.
It is understood the four NRL clubs who are beginning to circle are Parramatta Eels, Wests Tigers, Manly Sea Eagles and the Brisbane Broncos.
The Eels and Tigers are currently leading the race for his signature, with both clubs set to launch a bid for 25-year enforcer.
Wests Tigers coach Jason Taylor, coached Evans in 2011 and 2012 as part of the Roosters’ NYC side and is said to have close ties with Evans. But, the salary cap may become an issue with the Tigers, who are desperately wanting to keep James Tedesco on their books long-term.
This could leave the door open for the Eels, Sea Eagles and Broncos to pounce on Evans.
Evans has made 58 appearances for the Roosters since making his debut in round 2 of the 2014 season against the Parramatta Eels in the Roosters 56-4 win.
