Leeds are reportedly closing in on a summer deal for Carpi striker Jerry Mbakogu.
The Nigeria-born frontman was a target for Leeds last month with The Yorkshire Evening Post claiming owner Andrea Radrizzani was keen on the 25-year-old.
A move never materialised in the winter window, but GazzaMercato claimed on Friday that a summer transfer for a fee of €5million including bonuses was on the cards.
And in Saturday’s Gazzetta dello Sport via Sport Witness, Carpi general manager Matteo Scali was quoted as saying: “There’s a gentleman’s agreement with Leeds for June.”
Apparently Carpi were reluctant to sell in this transfer window because they are in contention to win promotion from Serie B.
Mbakogu has struck 36 goals in 124 appearances for Carpi, including eight in 21 in all competitions this term.
