Unplayable, Wanted him when Cellino was owner: Leeds fans react to huge reported transfer claim

Leeds United are reportedly close to a deal for Carpi striker Jerry Mbakogu, but fans are are in two minds about whether he’s the answer to their problems.

La Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira claimed that the player would sign a contract with Leeds on a £3million deal.

The only problem is Mbakogu is about as untried and untested as you can get.

He’s not set the world alight in Serie B where he’s had one good season with 15 goals in 30 games, but that was back in the 14/15 season.

Six in 25 league games this season suggest a power on the wane – not something that Leeds fans are looking forward to.

After hearing the news, Leeds fans flocked onto Twitter to make their voices heard, although not everyone was negative.

One fan said everyone should wait to see if Leeds sign an experienced striker on top before piling in, although he did say that if they didn’t, fans could fill their boots.

Another said that he’d wanted him at Leeds for years and compared him to Chris Wood, but another said he was a clown and that he wouldn’t be giving him a chance.

Here are the best reactions from the Leeds fans to the news about Mbakogu:
