Robbie Keane’s next endeavor could very well continue in Major League Soccer, as one of the league’s latest expansion sides has reportedly shown interest in the out-of-work striker.

Atlanta United FC, which will make its entry into MLS next season, has reportedly placed an offer for Keane, according to Twitter account @MLSTransfers.

Atlanta would likely have to use a Designated Player contract to obtain Keane ahead of the 2017 season. Gerardo Martino’s side has already acquired one DP in the build up to its inaugural season in MLS after signing former Premier League striker Kenwyne Jones in July 2016.

The 36-year-old has played in MLS since 2011 when Keane arrived on the scene for the LA Galaxy. In that span, Keane notched 104 goals for the Western Conference side and helped Bruce Arena’s club to three MLS Cup titles.
