Carlton are floating the possibility of trading pick one in the National Draft, according to Channel 7’s Tom Browne.
The Blues are willing to offer the first pick to the Gold Coast for picks three and six.
Carlton would then use the picks to recruit South Australian pair Jack Lukosius and Connor Rozee, while the Suns would select Victorian midfielder Sam Walsh.
Lukosius and Rozee toured the Blues facilities at Princes Park yesterday.
Lukosius, who has been compared to a young Nick Riewoldt said he would love to end up at the Blues.
“I’d love to end up here,” Lukosius told Channel 7 News.
“It’s a great footy club. It’s good to have a little tour today, have a look around.”

Gold Coast are attracted to Walsh as he has stated he would relocate interstate to begin his career.
The Suns have struggled to retain players and would be keen to recruit a player who is happy to live in the sunshine state.
Carlton would become the first team since Fremantle in 2001 to trade the first pick in the National Draft.
The Dockers traded pick one to Hawthorn for Trent Croad and Luke McPharlin.
The Hawks then used the first pick to snare Luke Hodge.
