Carlos Bacca is Milan’s number one target for the attack but there is competition from Roma and Liverpool.
After missing out on Jackson Martinez and Geoffrey Kondogbia, Milan are trying to recover and they’ve already put their hands on Andrea Bertolacci (will have a medical on Monday) and are trying to sign Carlos Bacca from Sevilla.
Martinez’s Colombia teammate has an exit clause of €30 million and according to Sky Italia’s Gianluca Di Marzio, Sevilla have given Milan the nod to go ahead and talk with Bacca and his agent.
“Is Italy a possibility?” Sergio Barila, Bacca’s representative, told Milannews.it. “In football you never know what could happen. Carlos is a top striker, and Italy is a top League. However, he has a contract with Sevilla, and there are other clubs in other countries interested.
“Milan? I can’t speak about one club in particular, that would be unprofessional on my part, I can only talk about the player. He’s a great goalscorer, he’s scored goals in Colombia, Belgium and Spain.
“He’s a striker who guarantees goals for any team he plays for.” La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Milan have already received an indication from the player that he would welcome a move to the fashion city but competition is fierce for him with both Roma and Liverpool interested in him.
Sky and SportItalia believe Milan could have an advantage in the negotiations with Sevilla as the La Liga club are in talks with Milan over Adil Rami and the Frenchman might be part of the deal. il Corriere dello Sport reports that Adriano Galliani is ready to offer Sevilla €25m plus Rami for Bacca.
Milan are already thinking about the alternatives and according to La Gazzetta, they have identified Edin Dzeko, Romelu Lukaku and d Luiz Adriano as the possible Plan B.
