The Colombian striker has completed a move to AC Milan, despite having previously been linked with the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool [Express].

28-year-old Bacca ultimately completed a £21.5 million deal to the Serie A heavyweights after the Rossoneri met his fee-release clause [Daily Star].

His departure has left a void at the pinnacle of the Sevilla attack, but the Rojiblancos appear already to have identified the player they will approach to replace Bacca.

According to the International Business Times, coach Unai Emery has revealed his summer list of transfer targets—a selection which includes Hernandez.

The forward’s future is uncertain, although it is safe to say that he doesn’t appear to have a future at United under Louis van Gaal.

The Mexico hitman spent last season on loan at Real Madrid, but struggled for game time and failed to ignite. The Merengues had the opportunity to sign the forward at the end of his contract, but ultimately opted not to move for the 27-year-old [Daily Mail].

West Ham United have also been linked to the forward [Mirror], although Sevilla—who have already signed Chelsea’s Gael Kakuta this summer [Daily Mail]—may well be confident that their ability to offer Champions League football to Hernandez will convince the forward to choose them over an EPL stay.
