With the Cats seeking a stronger hand to land Jeremy Cameron from the Giants whilst holding three first-round selections, Geelong could move for one of the Bombers’ top 10 selections to finalise a deal for the 2019 Coleman Medal winner.
GWS have shown their interest in gaining a player from Geelong given their latest offer, with the addition of either pick 6 or 7 in exchange for multiple late first-round selections with the Bombers the key to satisfying the Giants.
The deal would see Cameron granted his move to Kardinia Park while the Giants gain multiple picks early into draft night, with the Bombers adding to their draft hand and increasing their chances to land GWS young gun Jye Caldwell.
The Giants have asked for a pick close to the top 10 for Caldwell, with a late first-round selection via Geelong likely to get a deal done.
The Bulldogs remain adamant the 23-year-old will remain at the Kennel, but with a strengthened trade hand, the Bombers could be willing to move on a future selection or even one of their top picks.
With the imminent bid for Jamarra Ugle-Hagan, the Dogs will be keen to move on any first-round selections possible, with up to six clubs already chasing their opening selection.
Add an earlier pick in a move that would see Dunkley ‘don the sash’ and the Bulldogs now have a strong play for departing Magpie Adam Treloar.
Collingwood are keen to shed as much salary weight as possible, even offering to pay $100,000 worth of Treloar’s salary for 2021 if he is to leave the Holden Centre.
With Collingwood one of the six clubs pressing for the Bulldogs’ first-round pick, both Treloar and Stephenson could find themselves at Whitten Oval to fill void’s in Luke Beveridge’s side.
Elsewhere, the Blues will be looking to finalise a move for Adam Saad, with Essendon now looking happy to move on their star defender and a pick close to the third round for Carlton’s pick 8.
A pick of that range (potentially 48) landing in Carlton’s lap could open a move for Geelong midfielder Lachie Fogarty, after they were reported to show interest in the 21-year-old.
