Fremantle has identified Geelong forward Shane Kersten and GWS Giants big man Rory Lobb has forwards that can replace Matthew Pavlich at the club next season, according to The Age.

Kersten recently found himself out of the Geelong side, despite being in relatively good form , kicking 21 goals from 14 games this season, as a good support for Cats big man Tom Hawkins.

Giants big man Lobb is second in the competition for contested marks and has had a break-out season, forcing former number one pick Jonathon Patton to play more up the ground this season.

Lobb has played every game this season, kicking 20 goals and averaging five marks and three contested marks per match.
