Should a rival club move for improved Blue?

Essendon great Matthew Lloyd feels Carlton swingman Levi Casboult is a player rival clubs should consider moving for this trade period.

According to the Herald Sun, the Blues are only prepared to offer the 29-year-old a one-year extension with his manager keen to strike a multi-year deal for his client.

Casboult is contracted at Ikon Park for next year and enjoyed an impressive end to the 2019 season under new coach David Teague.

If Carlton remain reluctant to up their offer, Lloyd feels he could continue his late career renaissance at another club.

“At this stage, another club might come and offer him two (years) and he’ll have to decide whether to take it,” Lloyd told Telstra AFL Trade Radio.

“I’d never take Casboult as a key forward … but as a key defender I think he looks good.

“I think Casboult could have a good five years a key defender. If I was another club, I’d offer Levi Casboult two years if Carlton weren’t going to offer him that.”

Casboult, a fifth-round selection in the 2012 AFL Draft, has played 124 games for Carlton.

He enjoyed a career-best finish of fifth in the Blues' best and fairest after shifting into defence during the 2019 season.
