Report: Inter to fight Tottenham for Bacca

Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca is a target for Tottenham, but Serie A side Inter are also reportedly looking to secure his signature.

Carlos Bacca may have recently signed a contract extension until 2018 at Sevilla, but he remains on Tottenham and Inter's radar.

The 28-year-old has five goals in seven games in La Liga this season and is turning heads at clubs across Europe.

Despite his recent contract renewal, there are reports that Bacca is open to the idea of a fresh challenge and he may get that chance from Tottenham or Inter.

Inter have underachieved badly in Serie A and have often looked short of firepower despite bringing in Southampton exile Pablo Daniel Osvaldo on loan.

The Nerazzurri's players were reportedly called in earlier in the week to say whether they wanted coach Walter Mazzarri to continue and they are said to have demanded new recruits.

Bacca has also been linked to Arsenal and it was reported that the Gunners were preparing a deadline day swoop, but he seems to have now fallen off their radar.

Interestingly, Tottenham striker Roberto Soldado may be in the middle of this transfer battle because Tottenham may use him as bait to do a deal for Bacca, but Inter are also known to be interested in signing Soldado.
