Carlton has become somewhat of a second home for GWS players over the past few seasons, with the Blues recruiting several ex-Giants to the club in recent years.

And there could be more to follow.

Crocmedia’s Mitch Cleary reports Carlton has its eye on Greater Western Sydney midfielder, Matthew Kennedy.

Former GWS list manager, Stephen Silvagni, who now heads up the recruiting department at Carlton, has already lured former Giants Jed Lamb, Liam Sumner, Caleb Marchbank, Andrew Phillips, Jarrod Pickett, Lachie Plowman, Kristian Jaksch and Rhys Palmer to the club in recent years.

Kennedy has played 16 games in 2017, however, was dropped after round 21 and is in a tough battle to keep his spot in the star-studded midfield.

He was recruited with pick No.13 in the 2015 National Draft and has averaged 17.2 disposals and 4.6 tackles so far this season.

The Giants face a battle to keep several of its young stars this off-season, with Josh Kelly, Devon Smith and Jacob Hopper all linked to moves.

Kelly has received several big money offers, most notably from North Melbourne, while Smith and Hopper are reportedly both being courted by Geelong.
