Will he, won’t he? Carlos Bacca’s links to the Premier League have been one of the most ever-present rumours of the summer.
The AC Milan striker looked to be heading to West Ham in a deal worth around £25million. Reports even suggested a fee had been agreed and it was down to the player and club to complete the move.
The Colombian, 29, has also been linked with a transfer to the Emirates with Arsenal, as they looked to bolster their forward line.
The interest came after he netted 20 times in 43 appearances for the San Siro outfit, following his move from Sevilla last summer.
He recently committed his future to Milan and he backed that up by netting an impressive hat-trick in their Serie A season opener at home to Torino.
Vincenzo Montella’s side started the season with a 3-2 win, despite having Gabriel Paletta sent off – see Bacca’s treble below…
