Leicester City has announced the signing of Italian defender Caleb Okoli from Atalanta. The 22-year-old center-back has signed a five-year deal with the Foxes, becoming their third summer signing.

Okoli expressed his excitement about joining Leicester, stating that the opportunity to play in the Premier League was too good to pass up. "The Premier League is the best league in the world, and Leicester is a beautiful club with a lot of history," he said. "I'm eager to express myself and grow as a player."

Okoli has progressed through Atalanta's youth ranks and gained experience on loan in Italy. He has also represented Italy at various youth levels. Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers sees Okoli as a valuable addition to the team, citing his height, athleticism, and technical ability.

Leicester starts their pre-season schedule against Shrewsbury Town on July 23 and opens their 2024/25 Premier League campaign against Tottenham Hotspur on August 19.
