With the summer transfer window opened up, many teams and their managers are focusing on sprucing up their team and looking to gain potential players from other teams whom they feel will be able to contribute significantly for the team.
West Ham is now looking at picking up Carlos Bacca who currently plays for AC Milan. Indeed, this Italian football club is a premier breeding ground for footballers and many clubs hope to cash in on the talent that is nurtured by these clubs.
The east London team is rumored to put in an offer of £25.7m for picking up the 29 year old players. AC Milan on their side, also need to take certain calls as to the players they wish to hold on and the players they are willing to let go. It is coincidental that they are willing to let go of Carlos Bacca as well.
The striker of Columbian origin would certainly be able to contribute significantly to any team he joins. The large sum being offered by West Ham reflects the skills and talents that the club feels the striker would bring to their club front. Talks would begin shortly between the representative of the player and the club. The Hammers would be putting forward their bid for the striker. This player deems a Columbian international player.
Slaven Bilic of West Ham is looking to strengthen the front line of players to the club and this striker would definitely be a good fit for that strategy. Milan on the other hand, would be looking to replace the position that would be emptied by the striker by bringing on Diego Costa who is a Chelsea forward player. Bacca is said to have netted about 18 goals in Serie A games in the last season.
He had become the regular player to start any game for the Milan outfit. This has been the trend for the last four years he was with the club.
It’s been years since Ac.Milan has managed to lift a truly significant title.
The last time that the Italian club was able to win the Serie A title was back during the 2010-11 season and the Champions League was an even further time ago.
The latest high-profile top players that have worn the jersey of Ac.Milan were Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic but after offloading both of them, the Italian club has not managed to replace those highly rated performers and this is one of the reasons of why it’s believed that Ac.Milan are struggling so much to win big pieces of silverware and to make matters worse, there is another influential player that might be leaving the Italian club.
Carlos Bacca was signed by Ac.Milan on July 2 of 2015 for a price tag of €30 million and in his debut season, the Colombian attacker was able to score 18 goals which is more than any other player in the team.
Even though Bacca has not spent a substantially long period of time playing with Ac.Milan, the impact that he has made in San Siro is undeniable but his time with the Italian club might be running out as Bacca voiced his desire of making a return to his former club Sevilla.
Bacca is 29 years old and he has recently stated that he wants to play with Sevilla before hanging up his boots and retiring. The Colombian player has been one of the most influential performers of Ac.Milan in recent times and after having only spent 1 season with the Italian club, there are already rumors and discussions of him leaving as he wants to go back to Sevilla and there are a number of clubs interested in signing during the summer transfer window, so he might be leaving San Siro even sooner than expected.
If Carlos Bacca does get offloaded, it will be another blow for Ac.Milan as they are in need of players that can start pushing the team to new feats and restore their glory but it won’t happen if they keep on selling their best players.
