Western Bulldogs midfielder Lin Jong could reportedly be part of a deal to secure Josh Schache.
Schache has expressed his interest in returning to Victoria, with the Dogs one of the main suitors.
There are reports Lin Jong could be part of a deal that brings Schache to Whitten Oval.
Jong could be brought in by the Lions to bolster their midfield as compensation.
The Bulldog missed the second half of the 2017 season after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament against Melbourne in round 13.
Prior to that, he had averaged 20 disposals and three clearances a game through the Bulldogs' midfield.
The 24-year-old has played 50 games for the Bulldogs across six years.
