Still looking for a new striker to unveil at their new Olympic Stadium ahead of next season, West Ham are seemingly hopping from target to target to see who wants to join them.
Having failed with Alexandre Lacazette and apparently given up (for now) on Michy Batshuayi, their latest potential signing is AC Milan’s Carlos Bacca, who has apparently been the subject of an offer from the Hammers.
Speaking to TuttoMercatoWeb, his agent Sergio Barila explained the current situation he and his client currently find themselves in surrounding the West Ham interest.
He said: “These are hours of waiting, nothing is decided yet. Bacca and myself are evaluating more than one possibility. Carlos is already at a great team, but we must first know the design of the new AC Milan before making a decision about his future.
“There are many important teams who have contacted us, which is normal since Bacca is a striker who guarantees many goals per season and is definitely a valuable piece in the market.”
AC Milan are currently in talks about having a Chinese consortium buy a 70% stake of the club, with many changes expected, which is what Barila was referring to.
With new money possibly coming into the club, and a guaranteed goalscorer already present, perhaps the new owners will want to ensure the Colombian striker remains in Italy for the time being?
Onto the next one for West Ham, in that case?
