Carpi's president has once again made a public statement claiming Jerry Mbakogu is set to head to Leeds United.
Now club chief Claudio Caliumi has claimed only a 'cataclysmic event' will prevent Leeds signing the Nigerian.
Carpi almost seem too keen to get rid of Mbakogu, although that is a cynical way to look at it, when instead they appear to be welcoming the chance to let the striker step up a level and get some money in return.
Mbakogu scored eight goals in all competitions this season, with the second half of his campaign hindered by a knee injury.
Leeds appear in no rush to confirm Mbakogu's arrival, but at least are keeping the option open for now.
