Italian Serie A outfit, Atlanta has joined the race to sign Super Eagles winger Ademola Lookman.

Lookman joined Leicester City on a season long-loan from RB Leipzig in the German Bundesliga last summer.

The ex-Fulham loanee scored 8 goals and provided 6 assists in 41 appearances across all competitions for Brendan Roger's side.

The King Power stadium looked the likeliest permanent destination for the 24-year-old after a decent loan spell.

However, recent reports from Germany claim that The Foxes' interest in the winger has dwindled and he may return to Leipzig for pre-season.

Meanwhile, Web Magazine 24 reports that Atlanta has shown interest in the 24-year-old as a potential acquisition to beef up their attacking options.

Lookman scored his first international goal for Nigeria in their 10-0 drubbing against Sao Tome and Principe in the 2023 AFCON qualifiers.
