The Broncos "will be signing" rising Storm playmaker Brodie Croft, according to Fox Sports' James Hooper.
Brisbane is looking to rebuild their side following a horror loss to Parramatta in the opening week of the finals, with a particular focus on the spine.
Anthony Seibold struggled to cement his halves this year, rotating through a number of players, with Darius Boyd reportedly set to shift from five-eighth into the centres.
And Croft has emerged as a key target according to Hooper, despite being under contract next season.
“I’ll tell you who the Broncos will be signing as a playmaker, it will be Brodie Croft,” Hooper told NRL 360 on Fox League.
“I’m genuinely of the belief that it will be Brodie Croft who goes into the Broncos’ system and takes control of that side next year.”
The Australian’s Brent Read added: “He’s the only bloke they’re looking at right now.
“They haven’t yet (found the space for him in the salary cap).”
