Leeds United's ongoing pursuit of Jerry Mbakogu is still 'on' according to the Italian media.
Mbakogu's club Carpi are desperate to sell, despite their initial deadline of June 30 passing without Leeds rubber stamping a deal.
This is because Carpi need the money and wages off their books so they can bring in their own striker target Federico Melchiorri, a fan favourite who they are looking to bring back.
Carpi will be holding an event at their stadium on July 11 open to fans as they begin pre-season and they want to have Melchiorri ready to unveil.
To do so, they really need Mbakogu sold and off their books, and they are willing to accept a reduced offer.
The report from TV Qui claims this is because Carpi do not want any more time wasted and want a quick sale of Mbakogu.
To say they are pushing the Nigerian striker out of the door to Leeds is an understatement, but the Whites are yet to sanction a deal at their end with new boss Marcelo Bielsa unconvinced.
Carpi will have to find another suitor.
