West Ham will need to stump up £4million extra to force AC Milan in to selling Carlos Bacca, according to Sky Italia’s Gianluca Di Marzio.
West Ham have reportedly lodged a £15.25m bid for the 29-year-old striker, but Milan are supposedly holding out for around £19m.
Bacca is one of the most prolific strikers in Europe at the moment, netting 69 goals in his last three seasons – 49 in 108 for Sevilla and then another 20 for Milan last term.
The Colombia international is believed to be open to a move to the Hammers, but only if we can match his £59,000-a-week wage demands.
His wages, coupled with the reported transfer fee, would make it something of a gamble if the club were to go through with signing the 29-year-old, but the striker has proved to be one of the hottest strikers in the game in South America, Belgium, Spain and Italy throughout his career.
Transfermarkt.com value Carlos Bacca at £18.75m.
