Photos: Carlos Bacca shows why Liverpool and Tottenham are chasing his signature

The former bus driver's assistant is hot property for Sevilla, helping them reach a second consecutive Europa League final.

From humble beginnings in Colombia, to the very top of his game in Europe with Sevilla, 28-year-old Carlos Bacca continues to demonstrate why so many leading clubs are lining up bids this summer.

Conscious there's a plethora of interest, Bacca remains loyal to the Sevilla cause, even though he has admitted to being flattered by the stature of clubs linked, focused only on helping the Andaluz side towards their objectives this season.

Amongst the clubs in hot pursuit - Liverpool and Tottenham - who both have plenty of need to improve their respective attacking options next season. AC Milan are also very keen on a double swoop, for both Bacca and his manager, Unai Emery, as they look to rebuild.

With their 3-0 cushion from the first-leg at the Sanchez-Pizjuan last week, an early goal away at the Artemio Franchi home of Fiorentina, would be just the ticket for Sevilla, as they sought to secure their place in the Europa League final.

Step forward Carlos Bacca. In the 22nd minute, he superbly controlled a free-kick from Ever Banega, then drilled his finish assuredly past Fiorentina 'keeper Neto. 

Cool, calm and with devastatingly predatory instincts - everything you want from a quality striker - which Bacca certainly is, without any doubts.

Sevilla went on to score a second, as Daniel Carriço found the back of the net, helping the Spanish side secure a 5-0 aggregate victory, sending them to a second consecutive Europa League final.

Coincidentally, Sevilla will be looking to rewrite history in the competition, to surpass a record they currently share with Liverpool, Inter Milan and Juventus, who have all won the Europa League (or UEFA Cup) three times.

Victory in the Warsaw final, would be the fourth time Sevilla have clinched the Europa League title, following their previous victories in 2006, 2007 and 2014.
