With one blockbuster trade already in the books for the Mets this offseason, could the team be working on yet another one?

The Mets and Cubs have had “recent trade talks” concerning a possible Kris Bryant deal, according to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale.

Mike Puma of the New York Post also said there has been “dialogue” between the Cubs and the Mets about the three-time All Star third-baseman.

In return, Chicago expressed interest in catcher Francisco Alvarez, who remains one of the top prospects in the New York farm system.

In 2020, Kris Bryant saw his numbers take a dip as he hit .206 with four home-runs and just 11 RBI. Even still, Bryant made the National League All Star team in 2015, 2016 and 2019.
