Franklin’s future has been one of the hot topics in recent weeks, with 35-year-old, who became just the sixth player in AFL/VFL history to kick 1000 goals earlier this year, wanting to play on.

According to the report, Franklin’s move would be in part because of his family’s desire to relocate north of the border.

The move would be a massive boost for the Lions, who have struggled to rid the unwanted pretender title after being a contender for years.

One of those reasons is because Lions haven’t won at the MCG for close to a decade, but Franklin’s arrival would give Fagan’s team a premiership-winner who lifts in the big moments.

It would also add to the Lions’ lethal forward line, where he would join Joe Daniher, Eric Hipwood Charlie Cameron.
