The Blues are set to utilise a 30-45 day process to find the best candidate to lead the club into the 2022 season, with a number of high-profile names already being linked to Ikon Park.
Former Kangaroos coach Brad Scott is believed to be in the box seat for the job should he look to make a return to coaching instead of pursuing a potential position as the AFL's next football operations manager.
Assistant coaches Daniel Giansiracusa and Adam Kingsley join Voss in being seen as suitable options for the Blues, with Voss revealing to SEN SA on Monday that he had held talks with someone from the club, although those discussions are yet to progress from preliminary talks.
"I’ve had a discussion with them (Carlton) but it hasn’t gone further than that," Voss said.
"I won't confirm who and how, other than I've had that conversation.
"(Depending on Carlton job) I would have thought there’s a strong chance I would be at Port Adelaide next year."
Voss is currently out-of-contract for next season at Port Adelaide, with the Power's season coming to an end on Saturday night in disastrous fashion.

A 71-point loss to the Bulldogs saw the South Australians lose consecutive home preliminary finals across the past two seasons and their chance to adding a second flag at Alberton Oval squandered.
Voss reflected on the defeat, expressing his disappointment in failing to reach the season decider.
"A lot of hurt, a lot of disappointment. We left with not what we wanted. It’s a tough one to diagnose," Voss said.
"I would be really surprised (players got ahead of themselves) All the feeling I had going into the game is that we were ready."
Voss first joined the Power at the end of the 2014 season in, a year after not being offered a new deal with Brisbane as their head coach.
