West Ham are said to be closing in on the capture of Carlos Bacca, with reports claiming a fee has been agreed with AC Milan.
Bacca scored 18 goals in 34 appearances for the Serie A side after moving to the San Siro from Sevilla last summer.
According to calciomercato.com, the Hammers have lined up a £25million deal with AC Milan, with Bacca’s representatives due to meet the east London club in the coming days.
Bacca’s salary could be a stumbling block, however, with the Colombian striker said to be demanding the same terms given to Dimitri Payet when he signed a new £120,000-a-week, four-year deal earlier this year.
Bacca is currently AC Milan’s joint-highest earner on £60,000 a week.
