West Ham have received a boost in their pursuit of Carlos Bacca after Paris Saint-Germain ended their interest in the forward.
Hammers manager Slaven Bilic is working hard to bring in a big-name striker this summer and has already made bids for a number of top talents.
One of his key targets is AC Milan hitman Bacca, who scored 18 goals in 38 Serie A appearances last season, which was his first in Italy.
However, it looked as though the east London club would face competition for his signature from the French capital with PSG also keen on the former Sevilla man.
But now, according to L’Equipe, manager Unai Emery has decided against sanctioning a move for Bacca because he already has a full quota of non-EU players in his squad.
It had been suggested that Emery would move one of them on to make room for the Colombian but now he has decided against doing so – which is good news for the Hammers.
