West Ham have made one final attempt to sign AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca, according to MailOnline.

The club recently failed to land the striker after he rejected a contract offer in favour of staying in Milan.

However, following the news that striker Andy Carroll has been ruled out for up to six weeks through injury, MailOnline claim Bilic had decided to try and convince Bacca to come to London one last time.

The 29-year-old would reportedly double his wages by agreeing to sign for West Ham, with MailOnline claiming he is being offered £120,000-a-week by the Hammers.

However, it is also claimed that West Ham have made a bid of less than £20million to Milan, which is what they had originally agreed to pay for him earlier in the summer. It is not yet known whether the Serie A side would accept such terms.

With injuries to Andre Ayew, Diafra Sakho and Carroll, Bilic has been forced to re-enter the transfer market for reinforcements in the final third, and there are a number of reports linking the club with striker moves.

One has Premier League experience and the other one doesn’t, while Bacca would undoubtedly be every fans’ No.1 choice before the close of the the transfer window next week.

Bacca scored a hat-trick last weekend as AC Milan beat Torino 3-1. You can watch his goals below…
