Mitch Moses wants his future sorted soon, admitting he'd like a deal done before Friday night's battle with Sydney Roosters sensation Sam Walker

With just a fortnight left to activate an option to stay at Parramatta for next season, Moses remains a free agent for 2022.

The Eels No.7 has attracted plenty of interest, particularly from Brisbane who remain in the market for Moses, Adam Reynolds or Shaun Johnson.

But Moses has long made clear his preference is to stay at Parramatta, who are expected to win the battle for his signature with a three-year extension.

"Hopefully (it will be done before Friday night), I'm not too sure," Moses said.

"I have left it up to my management and the club.

"My management will let me know when I am ready to sign the deal and sign something that is there.

"I love my time at Parramatta. Hopefully something gets sorted out."

More immediately, Moses' focus is on the Eels finding a way to stop Roosters wunderkind Walker.

A young debutant himself at the Wests Tigers, Moses has all but admitted he would have done anything to have enjoyed the start to his career Walker has at the Roosters.

While Walker is starring as an 18-year-old, Moses first played in the NRL at age 19 as one half of a teenage prodigy playmaker pairing alongside Luke Brooks at Wests Tigers.

"It's a very hard thing to do (debuting so young)," Moses said.

"I am pretty much only doing it in the last couple of years, so for him to be doing it at 18 years old (is incredible).

"He's obviously got a lot of help there with a great team. They have won back-to-back premierships a couple of years back.

"It was probably the best team to go to as an 18-year-old half. You probably want to come through at a Roosters side."

But even so, Moses has been taken back by just how good Walker has been.

The Queenslander's five try-assists against Newcastle on Saturday night took his tally to 12 in five games, while has also crossed for three of his own.

Beyond that, his composure continues to be next level after arguably being the Roosters' best in three of his first five games.

"He has proven even better than I expected," Moses said.

"He is controlling the game and dominating as an 18-year-old, and that's massive. It's a credit to him.

"It's an easy job to do and he is doing it even better than easy. He's really dominating the game as a halfback.

"I love watching him play ... he put a clinic on the Knights."
