Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca is reportedly being targeted by Premier League duo Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur.

Sevilla want £14 million for Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur target Carlos Bacca, according to The Sun.

It has been reported by the British tabloid that the Spanish club are willing to cash in on their star striker but only at the right price.

Premier League duo Newcastle and Tottenham are claimed to be interested in the 28-year-old, who was one of the best players in La Liga this season.

Bacca scored 20 goals and created 28 chances in 37 La Liga appearances, firing Sevilla to a fifth-place finish.

The Colombia international striker had a pass accuracy of 67% and a shot accuracy of 71%, and he won 40 headers, 26 dribbles and 13 tackles.

The former Club Brugge star was also influential in Sevilla’s Europa League triumph, scoring seven goals and creating 11 chances in 15 matches.

Paying £14m for a 28-year-old striker may not suit everyone, but given Bacca’s record over the past two seasons, it would be a good piece of business from Newcastle or Spurs if they sign him.

It will be interesting to see if either the Magpies or Tottenham are able to convince Bacca to join them.

Sevilla will play in the Champions League next season, while Spurs will feature in the Europa League and Newcastle narrowly avoided relegation from the Premier League.
