A recent report from the BBC claimed the Hammers were in talks with AC Milan regarding a potential transfer for the Colombian international, and now the 29-year-old has spoken out about the ongoing rumours regarding his future.
“My future is in God’s hands,” he said. “I have four years on my contract with Milan, but I know of the interest of English, Spanish, German, French and Italian teams.
“It’s not a simple decision but we are calm because there is time and my agent is in contact with these clubs and Milan.”
Bacca scored 20 goals in 43 matches for Milan last season and he has found the net regularly wherever he has been.
He may be nearly 30 but the same can be said of Dimitri Payet and he has proved to be one of West Ham’s greatest signings of recent years, so a Hammers move for Bacca would make sense as they look to make the next step up in the coming campaign.
West Ham manager Slaven Bilic will know the importance of bringing in another quality striker and Bacca certainly fits the bill, but as the player has hinted himself, there are plenty of other clubs eager to do a deal if he does leave the San Siro this summer.
