Coach Stephen Kearney has named a preliminary 23-man panel, consisting of of players from the eight clubs not competing in the NRL play-offs.
Leuluai, a former World Cup winner, is one of 11 players from NZ Warriors.
They will continue to train over the next month before learning whether they will make the cut.
A final 24-man squad will be named during Grand Final week on October 2.
England, Scotland and Australia are also competing in the Four Nations tournament.
Leuluai, a Harry Sunderland Trophy winner in 2010 and a firm fans’ favourite, is returning to Wigan in 2017.
