West Ham may have to wait until Monday to find out if they have been successful in their pursuit of striker Carlos Bacca, according to Football Italia via Calciomercato.it.
The Hammers have had a club-record €30m bid accepted by AC Milan and have reportedly offered the Colombian €4.5m-per-season to tempt him to the Olympic Stadium.
However, it is believed Bacca is eager to see if Atletico Madrid, who are also interested, up their initial offer which was rejected by Milan.
So in the hope of Atletico returning with a higher bid, Bacca has asked to hold off making a final decision on West Ham’s contract until Monday.
There have been a few reservations over the decision to pursue a deal for Bacca, who is 29-years-old and seemingly already at the peak of his game.
However, there is no hiding away from his impressive goal scoring record. The Colombian has scored 20+ goals a season in Belgium, Spain and Italy and would certainly have no problems adapting to life in the Premier League.
Transfermarkt.com value Bacca at £21.25m.
