Premier League side West Ham United have placed a €30m bid for AC Milan and Colombia striker Carlos Bacca, according to foottheball sources.
Sources confirm that the east London club who are moving to the Olympic Stadium for their new season have already made a tempting offer for Bacca and are desperately waiting for a positive reply.
West Ham United had an incredible last season and after bagging the new television rights the club are looking forward to bolster their squad with fresh resources which would help them to build on their seventh place in Bilic’s first Premier League season.
Bacca has established his class during his days at Sevilla where he played an instrumental role in winning two Europa League titles. With 18 goals to his name for AC Milan in the last Serie A season, the Colombian strikers have drawn a lot of attention from several top notch European clubs.
Bacca has also been linked with a possible summer move to Atletico Madrid, but sources reveal that West Ham United are in pole position to secure the services of the striker. Bilic is well aware of Bacca’s technical abilities and his move to West Ham United will strengthen the attacking options with Andy Carroll, Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia alrady in the squad.
Rumours suggest that West Ham star Dimitri Payet who has been in incredible form at Euro 2016, can make move away from the club this summer. However, if West Ham can gold on to Payet, then the link-up between the two players can turn out to be hugely beneficial for the east London club.
