West Ham have reportedly increased their bid for AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca to £26.6 million according to Calcio Mercato.
Per the source, the Hammers have offered £3.3 million per-season after tax and will also include lucrative bonuses.
The son of West Ham CEO Jack Sullivan – Jack Sullivan – revealed on his official Twitter account today that AC Milan have accepted the Hammers bid and that Bacca will make his final decision regarding whether he will make the move over the next 48 hours.
The Colombian international found the back of the net 17 times in 38 Serie A appearances last season. Barca also has 13 goals in 33 international caps for the Colombia national team over the past six-years.
Bacca had already turned down a previous proposal from the Hammers, as he wants to play in the Champions League but could be swayed to join this time around.
West Ham have had a busy summer in the transfer market and most recently signed Gokhan Tore on a one-year loan from Besiktas.
