The Tigers looked to have wrapped up a deal for the Hungarian star in the summer only for the deal to collapse at the last minute and boss Mike Phelan quickly snapped up Will Keane from Manchester United.
Phelan was set to renew his interest in Nikolic when the transfer window opens next month, especially now that Keane has been ruled out for the rest of the season through injury.
However reports claim that MLS side Chicago Fire have won the race to sign Nikolic, who has fired home 13 goals in all competitions for Legia this season.
Phelan is in the hunt for at least one striker in the January transfer window and may need one more if, as expected, Abel Hernandez heads for the exit door in the window.
