West Ham launch move for £25.4m-rated AC Milan striker; South American could leave

Posted by

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has made signing AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca a priority, according to the Daily Mail.

The Hammers are reported to have launched a move for the Colombian international, who scored 20 times in 42 games for the Serie A giants last season.

The report claims that Bacca has a £25.4 million release clause, but that Milan could be tempted to accept a lower offer. Bilic wants to sign a striker over the summer, and Bacca is understood to be top of his shortlist.

However, West Ham could face competition from Atletico Madrid. The Spanish giants are said to be keeping close tabs on the situation.

The Hammers could be set for more business in Italy as Enner Valencia is allegedly on the radar of fellow Serie A side Lazio.

The Daily Mail claim that West Ham want at least £12 million for the striker in a bid to recoup some of the transfer fee set aside for Bacca.
