In addition to two Ugandan internationals, Atraco Fc has set eyes on several more foreign players to boost their title hopes.

He said, “Whether they will be here by that time or not, I’m not sure, but one thing that is certain is that we’re talking to them and their club”.

The league leaders are hopeful about landing the experienced stars who made their breakthrough in Ugandan club football with both SC Villa (Wagaluka) and Kampala City Council, (KCC) for Kitagenda.

“We’ve a list of players we want to sign and for some time now, we have been in discussions with them and their (respective) clubs.
