AC Milan have placed Carlos Bacca on the transfer list, and want £21.2million for his services reports Calciomercato.com

The Italian giants completed a move for Gianluca Lapadula this week, pushing Bacca closer to the exit door.

He has been heavily linked with a move away all summer, with West Ham United thought to be particularly keen on taking him to the Olympic Stadium.

Indeed, quoted by the Guardian, his agent revealed that the Hammers had seen a bid turned down for his services earlier this month.

The same report stated that Slaven Bilic’s side had made a £15 million offer for the Colombian star, around €20million.

That was not enough for Rossoneri, with Calciomercato now reporting that they want at least €25million, around £21.2 million, if they are to sell him.

They are keen to complete a sale this summer though, with the website claiming that Milan have given permission to the striker’s representatives to speak with other clubs.

He is reportedly open to a new adventure next season, and would fancy a move to England, so it remains to be seen if West Ham will up their bid in the coming weeks given their well publicised desire to add a striker to their squad.
