Leeds United are said to be plotting a summer move for Carpi striker.
More details emerged this week regarding Leeds United's plans to sign Carpi striker Jerry Mbakogu.
The reports have prompted some concerns from Leeds fans, who are worried that the fee is simply too much for a player who is unproven in England and has a modest goalscoring record in Italy.
Mbakogu has netted six goals in 19 Serie B games, and two in two Coppa Italia games this season.
Here is a look at some of the comments made from Leeds supporters.
"Overpaying for rubbish again I see, nothing seems to be changing with our club, let's hope they pull out of the deal and hopefully Tyler Roberts will do good enough so we won't have to go for him."
"So much for the new plan of recruiting British players in the Summer."
"This guy playing in the Italian B league is not where we should be going! You pay peanuts as the saying goes! We need to make a big money signing in the summer and not this second division player. Second division in Italy is not like the championship its lower standard."
Meanwhile on Twitter further concern was expressed.
@andrearadri Mbakogu is another Orta mistake waiting to happen.... especially at 4M+ Better options...... better players. There has to be something wrong when an ordinary fan's first response is "Oh no!".... Orta's judgement is appalling.— Brixham-Seaboat © (@BrixhamSeaboat) February 8, 2018
Leeds are not tied into any agreement just yet, but if Leeds fans are to believe they are going to be buying a top player in Mbakogu, they will want to see him end the season strongly.
He has one goal and two assists in his last two matches, which shows he might be coming into a bit of good form after a run of just two goals in 12 matches beforehand.
Mbakogu's Leeds move is likely dependent on Pierre-Michel Lasogga, and if there is desire on the part of both club and player for the German to make his loan move permanent, Leeds may not need to sign the Carpi striker after all.
