Carlos Bacca has told Marca he will sort his future out after the Copa America, but says the final decision will remain with AC Milan.

The comments were relayed by Tuttomercatoweb, with Bacca speaking to reporters while on international duty with Colombia.

He said: "I know there is interest from important clubs in Spain, England, Germany and France.

"Some teams have already spoken to my agent, but he will tell me everything after the Copa America.

"I still have a four-year contract with Milan and I do not know if they are willing to sell me."

SkySports reported in early June that West Ham United had offered £15 million for Carlos Bacca, but that AC Milan had rejected the offer.

The Hammers have more money available, but it is just a question of how highly they value the striker, who will turn 30 in September.

Bacca signed for Milan just last summer in a big money move after firing Sevilla to the Europa League title, but his addition was not enough to get them back fighting for trophies, finishing seventh in Serie A this past campaign.

He lived up to expectations, scoring 18 goals in 38 appearances in the league, plus netting a further two in the Coppa Italia.
