Liverpool set to miss out, as Carlos Bacca agrees terms with AC Milan

The Colombian international striker is a step closer to leaving Sevilla.

The agent of Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca has informed local media outlet, Estadio Deportivo, that his client has accepted economic terms with AC Milan.

Sergio Barila confirmed his client is satisfied with the deal offered by the Italian giants, meaning that they must now reach terms satisfactory to Sevilla, in order to complete the deal.

However, that is far from clear cut. Bacca has a €30 million release clause valuation, which Sevilla expect to be met in full, if they're to sell. There is speculation that AC Milan could offer central defender Adil Rami, as part of the deal, in order to reduce the cash price.

Liverpool have also been pushing strongly to sign Bacca, although it now appears they're fighting a loosing battle to sign the Colombian star, unless they can tempt him with better terms and assurances, along with meeting the clause valuation set by Sevilla.

AC Milan certainly haven't wasted any time in making their offer to the 28-year-old, who had been waiting until the end of his participation in the Copa America, where he's been featuring with Colombia.

Bacca has enjoyed an exceptional two seasons with Sevilla, and it now looks like he'll have bowed out in style with them, after scoring a brace that helped his team win a second consecutive Europa League triumph, in Warsaw against Dnipro.

Making a total of 108 appearances in all competitions for Sevilla, Bacca contributed 49 goals for the Spanish club, following his move from Belgian outfit Club Brugge in the summer of 2013.
