Carlton is reportedly interested in luring more GWS Giants players to the club next season after signing Lachie Plowman, Liam Sumner, Andrew Phillips and Jed Lamb last season. reporter Nick Bowen has reported that Carlton is now interested in key forward duo Adam Tomlinson and James Stewart, key defender Caleb Marchbank and half-forward/midfielder Will Hoskin-Elliott.

Tomlinson, the most experienced of the four, has played 57 games in his short career thus far, but has struggled to cement a spot in the senior side this season, despite dominating the NEAFL division. 

Stewart would find himself in unfamiliar territory after he was over-looked by Collingwood as a father/son selection where his father, Craig made a name for himself.

Marchbank and Hoskin-Elliott have shown their talents at times throughout their careers, but have struggled with injuries in the last few years.

Bowen also added that Carlton could potentially part way with their first round pick, currently number eight in the draft, to secure potentially all four.
