VIDEO: £9million Everton target scores his 20th goal in emphatic win

Carlos Bacca, a player recently linked with both Everton and Barcelona, has been in terrific form recently and last night aided an emphatic Sevilla win by scoring his 20th goal of the season.

The Colombian international was in fine form last night, as he scored the third in four Sevilla goals in order to knock FC Porto out of the Europa League competition. 

In truth, the La Liga side were barely made to break a sweat as Porto, without their talisman Jackson Martinez, huffed and puffed but couldn't find an end product.

Liverpool linked Ivan Rakitic scored the first goal for Sevilla with a nicely placed penalty. Vitolo then took advantage of some comical defending by Eliaquim Mangala to make it 2-0 before Carlos Bacca scored a lovely twisting snap-shot. 

Former Paris Saint-Germain striker Kevin Gameiro was the last one on the scoresheet for Sevilla, as Quaresma scored a consolation goal late on for Porto.

Bacca, although having recently played down speculation, could be a fantastic signing for Everton in the summer, and at £9million represents a bargain. Especially when you consider the price English teams ask for their players.

20 goals in his debut season at Sevilla speaks volumes for his ability and with the World Cup coming up, Everton may have to act fast, otherwise could face disappointment if more teams become interested.
