According to TransferMarketWeb, former West Ham transfer target Carlos Bacca has again been targeted by Arsenal ahead of the summer transfer window.
Bacca has scored 13 goals in 29 Serie A appearances this term but it’s claimed he’s likely to leave the San Siro in the Summer. The 30-year-old is under contract until 2020 but could reportedly be sold for just £15m (€18m).
However, a rival story on www.calciomercato.com claims West Ham will again battle it out with Valencia for his signature in the summer. He also has interest from China but is reluctant to move to the Far East claiming he is not motivated by money.
West Ham made a take it or leave it offer to the South American last summer as he dithered over his future at AC Milan. We allegedly offered £25m before turning our attention to Andre Ayew after receiving no reply from the Colombian’s representatives.
Last summer Bacca claimed that a number of clubs from across Europe are interested in his signature but said he wanted Champions League football. AC Milan is expected to again put Carlos Bacca up for sale when the transfer window opens.
No thanks he is even older now than he was last year and he rejected us for reasons that we were not of a high enough calibre, that was when we were in Europe with one of the worlds best players in our team. He didn’t want us and he is clearly up himself and has a bad attitude imo we should steer well clear or appear desperate.
Poor season ticket sales = Marquee striker talks, Season Tickets then all sell out = China Doll is our marquee striker anyway 😀😀😀
Imho we could struggle to attract any ‘big name’ this summer, we hardly set the PL alight this season did we..last summer things were looking rosey & a nice new stadium move on offer, this year we aren’t safe from the drop with only 3 games left.
I would like to see us try and get James Ward-Prowse or Oriel Romeu, Jordan Pickford, then a right back a left winger and two strikers with blistering pace, I hope Tony Henry has been busy and the insider doesn’t re-appear mysteriously over the summer window.
A new fitness coach must be top of the list. Half the team run like they all need hip replacement along with Bilic.
