Arsenal had reportedly sent representatives to keep a close watch on Carlos Bacca during AC Milan's Serie A clash against Bologna.

The Colombia international is facing an uncertain future beyond the current campaign with the club's Chinese owners looking to bring in a world-class striker to their ranks.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the north London outfit were monitoring the performance of the Rossoneri striker, who they had previously approached for during the winter transfer window.

Bacca is understood to be keen on testing himself in the Premier League, but he snubbed the chance to join West Ham United last summer in order to join a club of a higher pedigree.

Arsene Wenger's side no longer have Champions League in the offing, but the striker is nevertheless among the transfer targets as they plan for Thursday night football in the Europa League next term.

Arsenal are yet to resolve the future of star forward Alexis Sanchez, who has just a year left on his existing deal at the Emirates.
