Fox Sports reports that Pickett, who is contracted for next season, is all but certain to be traded to the Blues over the next fortnight.

The 20-year-old missed the majority of 2016 after suffering a Lisfranc fracture in the NEAFL in April.

He is yet to play a senior game after being recruited in 2014, but kicked 26 goals from 17 games in the NEAFL in 2015, playing as a small forward/midfielder.

Carlton has already been in the headlines this week, with both Bryce Gibbs and Zach Tuohy requesting trades from the club on the opening day of the trade period.
