Carlton co-captain Patrick Cripps has revealed his excitement over Eddie Betts' potential move back to the Blues.

Betts has spent the past six seasons at Adelaide and has endeared himself to the Crows fans, but is reportedly keen on returning to his former club, with Carlton interested in a reunion.

Cripps, who won the AFLPA MVP for his efforts this season, says the club should certainly look into bringing a player of Betts' calibre back into the fold.

"Someone like Eddie, when you have a guy like Sam Petrevski-Seton at your club who’s from Halls Creek, and you're a guy that’s played such good footy like Eddie who still kicked 37 goals in a team that didn’t make finals," Cripps said on SEN Breakfast this morning.

"I think it’d be silly not to ask the question. If he came to us I’d be absolutely stoked."

The 24-year-old also spoke about the club's link to want-away Gold Coast Sun Jack Martin, who nominated the Blues as his club of choice after handing in a trade request.

Following their strong form under new coach David Teague, Carlton have become a destination club for rival players,  with Sydney's Tom Papley and Richmond's Dan Butler also reportedly interested in moves to Ikon Park.

"It’s awesome that Jack (Martin) has already said he wants to come," Cripps said.

"It’s good to have players wanting to come to your club. We haven’t really had that since I’ve been here.

"I suppose when a big club in Melbourne gets going, players from the outside look at it and want to come and that's what we want."
