There is no dearth of transfer targets for Chelsea this transfer window. It’s unclear whether the club will decide to bring any major signing in January, but that doesn’t stop the rumour mill from churning rumours, and we have a new name today.
London Evening Standard reports that the Premier League champions are interested in signing AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca.
According to the report, the Blues will have to shell out €40 million to secure the signing.
The Blues have found it hard to score goals this season and they are reportedly in the market for a striker. Diego Costa has shown glimpses of his old form recently, but even his future is undecided with a return to Atletico Madrid mooted by various reports.
The likes of Loic Remy and Radamel Falcao are counting their days at the club, and the Blues are in obvious need of a goal-scoring threat.
The Blues were recently linked with Atletico Madrid striker Jackson Martinez, and it’s time for his compatriot Carlos Bacca to have his name linked with a move to Premier League.
The 29-year-old rose to prominence with his performances during the 2-year spell with La Liga club Sevilla. His performances with the Spanish club earned him a €30 move to Serie A giants AC Milan in the summer.
He arrived at Milan believing that the club will be fighting for the trophies and Champions League place. But AC Milan have continued to deceive this season and despite a heavy massive summer transfer outlay, they still struggle in the sixth place in the league table.
A Champions League spot in the league this season looks next to impossible and the club might want to cut its losses by selling Bacca at the right price.
The Colombian hasn’t done too bad in the Italian league and has managed to score eight goals in 18 appearances.
