For the watchers of Taranto how is his disposal and what kind of midfielder is he ?.
As a 21 yo he picked up 720 disposals, 165 tackles, 137 clearances, and 11 goals in 2019. Still only 24. So apparently he's an absolute jet.

Gun player. Huge pick up.
“I find it nearly impossible to make those judgments, but he is certainly up there with the really important ones, he is certainly up there with the Francis Bourkes and the Royce Harts and the Kevin Bartlett and the Kevin Sheedys, there is no doubt about that,” Balme said.

Still yet to reach potential.

He is on similar par to Prestia when we got him, slightly different player but he'll be out best midfielder post Dion.
Go Tigers!

What is our Plan B if this doesn’t work out, and please don’t say old mate Ross will take us to the promised land.

Currently a member of the Roupies, and employed by the great man Roup.

Dunno how to post photos on here but just looking at his career stats on The AFL app, rated elite for disposals, contested possessions, kicks and clearances and above average for metres gained and score involvements. Also has above average and elite tackling and pressure acts this seasons so is no sloucher defensively either. Seems like the area with the most room for improvement is his disposal efficiency which at 69% is rated below average for this season although it’s worth noting that this is still above the likes of Oliver, petracca and Prestia.

Won the giants b&f in their grand final year at age 21 and is still only 24 years old now. Great player now with plenty of upside. Fingers crossed he really does want to come here.

He's a fecking gun.

Accumulates huge ball, good tackler, great mark and kick for goal can play medium forward too etc.

Tim Taranto trade talks: Richmond emerges as favorite as Collingwood zeroes in on GWS Giants teammate Bobby Hill

Richmond is emerging as the favorite to land Tim Taranto after a Collingwood curveball caused by one of his GWS teammates.

Taranto, 24, is the biggest name to leave the Giants as the club faces another exodus in the AFL trade period.

With multiple teammates in the mix to move around, it’s perhaps no surprise that one has affected another’s plans.

7NEWS Melbourne’s Tom Browne recently reported that Taranto, who spent some time in the Victorian capital this week, is deciding between the Tigers and the Magpies.

In a further update to the talks, he has now revealed that the Pies have “cooled off a bit” in Taranto “from a big money perspective”.

“According to a well-placed commercial source, they are now putting power, in particular, into bobby hill”, said Browne in Triple M.

The 22-year-old Hill sought a trade with Essendon at the end of last season but was limited to the final year of his contract with GWS.

He subsequently played the first 11 games of this year before retiring following a testicular cancer diagnosis and surgery.

The Bombers have not come into the conversation to take Hill to Victoria this offseason, with the forward apparently locked up in Collingwood.

That has left Taranto with more to think about in his move, with Browne reporting that the midfielder “is leaning towards Richmond now”.

The Tigers have holes to fill in their long-term midfield, with Dustin Martin battling injuries this year, Shane Edwards retiring after the Finals and Trent Cotchin turning 33 early next season.

So far, GWS has refused to give up on re-signing Taranto, who reportedly had offers in front of him to extend his time in Sydney.

The appointment of Adam Kingsley as the club’s head coach breathed new life into the Giants’ ability to contend for the Taranto signing, according to football chief Jason McCartney.

“Tim is out of contract, so he has to make a call. We would love to keep Tim,” he told SEN this week.

“Tim has been a wonderful player for our club for the last six years.

“He was the best and fairest winner in a great final year, so we would love to be able to keep Tim.

“Obviously the opportunity for him to speak with new coach Adam Kingsley in the next couple of days is going to be important.”

Jacob hopper and Tanner Bruhn are the other GWS midfielders who are reportedly set to leave the club, although the former is under contract for 2023.

Both have been linked to Geelong, but Bruhn, a former Falcons junior, may find a home at a Melbourne-based club.

McCartney said the Giants hope to convince Hopper he can stay and play “a really important role” in midfield next year.

When you text Tiger71 (@Tiger7192926603) and he says " hearing it's 90% done" RE: Tarranto, it makes you all warm and fuzzy.

This is heading into Tom Lynch strong mail type of areas.

10% still lingers but Kingsley has to do what he has to do obviously.

Im pretty excited, mobile lit up at 2pm from people i trust saying congrats he is yours. Obviously, exciting but nothings done till he is signed and announced :) How good will this off season be if we get Truck and Taranto!?
Quote from: The Vagabond Papers
Ok, but what will be the cost?
Quote from: Bigfooty Tigercast
I think some type of combo of our 1st or future first and or Soldo + early 2nd maybe.

A few combos at play.

I'd be comfortable parting with a 1st rounder on the back of the immediate impact he will have cross with the retirements we have and the young kids already in the mix
Quote from: Monique Sabatino
The Soldo one is interesting, is that something you guys have actually heard or just throwing the idea out there? He has plenty of connections at the club and seems well liked also but I guess it just depends if he wants to give it a shot at being the number 1 ruck somewhere else
Quote from: Bigfooty Tigercast
Soldo is just a name we threw up on the basis of GWS probably need a better primary ruck than Preuss.

Game time will be something Soldo may want if we think this Miller / Nank / Balta combo has unlocked a new formula for us.
Quote from: BigFooty Tigercast
This is all just spitballing ideas here but you would have to think RCD, Aarts, Castagna, Soldo, Ross (if not signed) would all be wanting more opportunity elsewhere.
Quote from: Paul Henderson
Maybe picks  18 and 19 for Taranto and their 2nd (21)   That would be a win for us
Quote from: Tiger Dynasty
Don't want to give up pick 19 because it will the 1st pick on the second night of the draft.

We are bound get good offers for it from clubs eyeing off a slider. Should offer pick 18 + future 2nd

GWS maybe interested in a fringe player as part of the trade.

Some of those trade suggestions are laughable.

Pick 18 if we have it plus a future 2nd is way unders

Have to disagree. TT is a good player but he isnt a worldbeater.

Prestia cost pick 7

If you think we're getting Taranto for 18 + future second around what 30-35 then I think you're on another planet mate.

Taranto will cost minimum 1st + 2nd given our ladder position, and that's with their cap squeeze too.

Think it will have alot to do with how desperate the Giants are to drop salary cap. Possible fire sale

Pretty sure I read somewhere based on their contracts for 2023 they are already a million + over the salary cap
