Leeds United still keen on Nigerian striker Jerry Mbakogu?

Leeds United are reportedly still keen to sign Carpi striker Jerry Mbakogu during the summer transfer window.

Leeds United have been given a boost in their attempts to sign Carpi striker Jerry Mbakogu during the summer transfer window.

The Yorkshire giants have previously held an interest in Mbakogu but a transfer had been in doubt due to the Nigerian potentially struggling to secure a work permit due a lack of international appearances.

However, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds remain keen to push through a deal, with the 25-year-old now being given Italian citizenship having moved to the country at an early age.

Leeds are now expected to push ahead with a £4m deal, with Carpi looking unlikely to claim a place back in Serie A after a poor campaign at Italy's second tier.

Mbakogu has scored six goals in 23 appearances in Serie B this season.
