Adelaide coach Matthew Nicks saluted the performance of Taylor Walker during the win over the West Coast Eagles and says the club are working on getting him tied down to a new deal.
The Crows are priced at 350/1 to win the 2022 AFL grand final and the win over the Eagles takes them to 14th on the ladder with four wins from 12 games.
Walker caught the eye during the 31-point win over the struggling Eagles that snapped a five-game losing streak, but doubts do remain over his future at the club.
The 32-year-old has just one year remaining on his current deal and is attracting interest from elsewhere. However Nicks says everything is being done to keep him on board, while the player has also hinted he would like to stay in Adelaide.
"I've said it so many times, in fact I said it 12 months ago to the day, we were in the same position, the club are working through it with Tex on what that looks like going forward,” Nick said.
Walker had 10 score involvements during the game with 22 disposals and eight marks, leading Nicks to sing his praises after the game.
"I thought he was really strong, especially in that first half when he was so influential on the game," Nicks added. "He's that pillar ahead of the ball for us. He's really finding his groove. It's quite exciting for us."
