Are Arsenal looking to hijack West Ham’s negotiations with Milan for Bacca?

Arsenal look set to enter a bidding war with West Ham United for Carlos Bacca.

As we mentioned earlier today, Milan should heavily consider selling the €30 million rated Colombian to the highest bidder. Bacca is ageing and €30 million is a sizeable fee for a solid, if not terrific, forward.

West Ham are looking to galvanise their solid team with a new set of stars to ensure their first campaign at their new stadium is a season to remember.

That being said, Arsenal do have deep pockets (on occasion) and are in need of a striker. This means we could see Bacca go for slightly more than the €30 million West Ham are bidding. This is fantastic news for Milan.

And it’s not like Bacca is a bad player, he’s just not worth this much money! Milan can do a lot with €30 million (or more) and I trust Montella to spend it well - that’s if he is to see a penny of it.
