Atlanta United are reportedly looking to bolster their defense by targeting Velez Sarsfield center back Lautaro Giannetti, according to The Athletic's Felipe Cardenas.

Giannetti, 27, played under Five Stripes manager Gabriel Heinze during their mutual time at the Argentine Primera Division club. He's made 114 appearances since debuting for Velez Sarsfield in 2012, plus has worn the captain's armband as of late.
