Carlos Bacca news

Bacca back on Gunners radar

Arsenal have reportedly revived their interest in AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca ahead of the winter transfer window. The Colombian is said to be desperate to leave the Rossoneri having previously missed out on a summer exit.

Bacca, 29, was the subject of strong interest from West Ham United in the summer, but it is believed that he was waiting on offers from one of Arsenal or Atletico Madrid.

Eventually, neither of the two approached for the player, and the marksman had to stay put at San Siro despite a late enquiry from Paris Saint-Germain.

According to The Sun, the Gunners are looking to seal the player's services in the New Year with the club in need of a player, who could provide additional support up front.

Les Parisiens boss Unai Emery is said to be eyeing a reunion with Bacca, but the Gunners remain favourites having already made contact with the South American footballer.

Arsenal would have to part with a £20m fee in order to sign the former Sevilla star.
