“My understanding is he’d prefer to play for Carlton,” Edmund said.
Carlton have expressed their desire to lure a small forward and Edmund believes the Blues are willing to trade for Martin, but at the right price.
“He wants to play for Carlton, but I don’t think the Blues are going to pony up.”
“I know there was a lot of talk about Essendon last year and it would have happened if the Bombers had the picks to make it happen.”
Edmund also said the Bulldogs are willing to pay Martin a little more than Carlton is prepared to.
“I’m hearing they’re even willing to pay close to that $600,000 to get him there,” he said.
“I think he wants to play for the Blues and if Essendon are out, the Western Bulldogs certainly aren’t.”
Martin has spent a tumultuous seven years at the Suns battling injury woes.
