We're less than a month away from the AFL's sign and trade period, and while we have five enticing matches still staged for the remainder of the 2022 season, plenty of attention is being drawn to anticipated off-season moves.

Several key figures in this year's exchange period have already nominated their ideal destinations for next season, while it seems new faces are emerging as potential trade options with each passing day.

Ahead of what is touted to be the busiest trade window in the league's history, we've narrowed the list of potential departures to 12 of the biggest names linked to new homes for 2023, assessing their value on the trade table and the likely packages that might get a deal over the line.

Here are the draft trade deals that could be pivotal to this off-season...

6. Jacob Hopper

Destination: Richmond

Richmond's dealings with Tim Taranto are sure to play a factor in any pursuit of Hopper, with their 2022 selections of Picks 12, 19 and 30 all likely heading to Blacktown, potentially along with their future first-round pick should they follow our suggestions in landing both onballers.

The Cats won't have as much wiggle room in their draft hand should discussions with the Tigers fail to reach a conclusion, however a first and second-round selection should be enough for the 25-year-old to trade clubs and please the Giants.

It will be interesting to see if Hopper and Taranto are packaged together or if a third club is involved to aid negotiations. Two separate deals may show us how highly each club separately rates the pair of midfielders.

Trade package: Picks 12 + 30
