Fyfe is only 25. I personally can't see it happening. May as well shut the joint down if let him go easily.
They need the marquee player to build the club around. Already been rebuilding given bottomed out last year and will finish low in 2017 on present form.
The best mids play well into their 30's.
Mids they'd expect to move fwd with and most are higher draft picks are - Fyfe (25yrs old), SHill (26), BHill (23), Neale (23), Bennell (23), Blakey (21), Weller (21), Crozier (21), Tucker (20), Balic (20). They have a very solid group there.
If Fyfe however doesn't think they can turn around fortunes within 3-5yrs or that Lyon is man for job that will be the big question.
Freo don't have to give him any consideration about family like Crows did with Danger. If he want to go to Vic club pushing for flag they would just secure the best deal from whoever offers it or keep him as he def won't end up in PSD.
Saints for example will have potentially 2x top 10 picks via their own and Hawks, and clear cap room already, more so if Riewoldt pulls pin. An offer from Saints of picks/players would supersede the FA compo individual pick IMO / help rebuild quicker.
