The South Australian junior showed promising glimpses at West Lakes across his 14 appearances with the Crows, where he moved to after two games with Richmond.
Having proven his worth with the Eagles - booting 44 goals from 19 games - Stengle is gaining further interest from multiple AFL clubs.
Geelong list manager Stephen Wells confirmed the Cats' interest in Stengle when speaking on SEN.
"We think Tyson has had a terrific period with Woodville-West Torrens, including a good performance in a premiership-winning team," Wells said.
"We do have some interest in Tyson. We haven't committed to him yet, it's not just us who want him. Tyson will have to make that decision himself.
Tyson’s in a terrific position where he can have a bit of control over the decision that he makes and where he has his next opportunity at AFL level.
“We’d be pleased if Tyson ended up with Geelong.”
Stengle and Betts are understood to be close friends, with the signing potentially a boost for the former's interest in joining the Cats.
