Fremantle midfielder Adam Cerra has begun to meet with Melbourne-based clubs this week, with at least two clubs in addition to Carlton expected to hold discussions with the young Docker about a move home.
The Blues ares seen as the most likely landing spot for the 21-year-old, however he has not ruled out other options just yet after requesting a trade home from Western Australia.
The Bombers, Hawks and Tigers have been previously linked to the gun onballer, who could demand as much as $750,000-per-season in his next deal.
Carlton, who have been reported as the team with the most interest in accommodating a Cerra trade, currently holds pick No.6 in November's NAB AFL Draft and posses the salary cap space needed to be able to table a deal similar to Fremantle's earlier offer.
In addition to the sixth overall selection, the Blues also currently hold picks No. 25 and 61 at November's national draft.
