While Wines is contracted to the South Australian club until the end of the 2022 season, AFL Media’s Damian Barrett suggests the Blues could be in for the bullish onballer.
“I think they (Carlton) will go again when it comes to a midfielder. They are really happy with securing, or effectively securing, [Zac] Williams,” Barrett told AFL Media’s Ask Damo.
“I still reckon it’s a watch this space on Ollie Wines and what he chooses to do. I know Carlton certainly has had a form of contact with him.
“He’s going to be a big-name player in the trade period unless he goes public going into the finals series about his intent to stay as a Power player.
“Until we hear something from him of a meaningful nature about his future as a Power player, I think it’s game on when it comes to his movements potentially.”
Wines’ management were believed to have approached Carlton during last years trade window, with Essendon another Victorian club named as a potential suitor for the midfielder.
