The Sydney Morning Herald have reported that the Tigers have identified Naden as a top target for not just the future but are keen to bring him in as early as 2021.
Naden has the ability to play both as a centre and a winger and has scored 20 tries in his 30 NRL games.
Any move for Naden would come with significant risk, as he is currently serving a a four game ban after he tested positive for cocaine after the 2020 grand final.
It would be unlikely for Naden to come in to fill a bench spot as well when he returns for the Panthers’ Round 5 clash against Canberra.

The Panthers are reportedly keen to keep Naden long-term and are very reluctant to entertain the idea of losing him this season.
