COLLINGWOOD is keen to use pick 58 to land its next trade target Patrick Lipinski after securing Nathan Kreuger from Geelong for a pick slide on Tuesday.

The Pies have been busy players to start the Continental Tyres AFL Trade Period, including a significant pick swap with Gold Coast on Monday and then trading in Kreuger in a deal with Geelong the following day.


They secured pick 58 as one of the Suns' selections and are understood to be keen to use that in a deal for Lipinski, although the Western Bulldogs are expected to want more for the talented midfielder.

Collingwood and the Dogs have had initial discussions on a trade for the 23-year-old, with the Pies hoping to use one of their later picks to secure the 56-gamer.
