After missing on Jackson Martinez and Geoffrey Kondogbia, Milan is ready to make its first big splash of the summer.

Milan is reportedly set to trigger the €30 million release clause for Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca. The 28-year-old striker would be snubbing Liverpool and Manchester United to join the Rossoneri.

Bacca joined Sevilla in 2013 after a dominant 2012-13 season with Club Brugge, when he scored 28 goals in 44 matches. At Sevilla, the Colombian scored 49 goals in 106 matches.

Fourteen of those goals for Sevilla came over two seasons in the UEFA Europa League. Bacca scored seven goals in both seasons, leading Sevilla to back-to-back Europa League triumphs. He scored two goals during the 2015 Europa League Final, a 3-2 win over Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk.

Bacca has been in Chile with the Colombian national team for Copa America. He started the first game against Venezuela and came on as a substitute against Brazil. He was unavailable for Colombia's final two matches after being sent off for shoving Neymar during an incident at the end of Colombia's 1-0 win over Brazil.
