 Italian Club Interested In Signing Real Madrid Tri-Eligible Winger Marvin Akinlabi
Italian Serie B club US Lecce are interested in signing Real Madrid's tri-eligible winger Marvin Akinlabi, according to reports in the Italian press.

Serie B News claims Lecce's Technical Director Pantaleo Corvino is planning to hold talks with the leadership of Real Madrid concerning the signing of Akinlabi, who is eligible to play internationally for Nigeria, Spain and South Korea.

Akinlabi was teammates with Pablo Rodríguez who joined Lecce in the summer transfer window and the duo were key members of the Real Madrid squad that won the UEFA Youth League in August 2020.

The Spanish-Nigerian youngster has trained multiple times with Real Madrid's first team and became the first player of Nigerian descent to feature for Los Blancos main squad when he was introduced off the bench by manager
Zinedine Zidane in a La Liga tie against Real Sociedad back in September.

It has been suggested that Akinlabi is under contract with the Spanish champions until the end of the 2020-21 season and it is claimed that Lecce are hoping to seal his transfer in January or next summer.

Christian Obodo and Edward Ofere played together at the Giallorossi during the 2011-2012 season.
