Tutto Mercato – via Inside Futbol – reckon that we’re still in talks with Carpi over Jerry Mbakogu as the rumour fails to die a death.
The forward was linked with us when Hecky was still in charge but it seemed as though Marcelo Bielsa’s arrival at the club meant that he’d not be coming in.
Certainly, I have no doubt that that will be the case, too, and so we should perhaps take this news with a pinch of salt as, for some reason, they want to cling on to the rumour.
I have serious doubts that this will be happening in this window or any other in the future.
A player who’d have been a risk, he never really seemed to be spoken about once Bielsa turned up and though certain places are trying to force the issue I think we can forget this rumour for the foreseeable.
