West Ham are looking to sign a striker this summer, and have been quite active in the transfer market.
The Hammers have been linked to almost every striker available on the market, but have failed so far to sign someone.
There have been reports claiming West Ham have agreed a €30m fee for AC Milan star Carlos Bacca, but the player is reluctant to move as he wants to play in the Champions League.
According to a latest report on Italian website Calciomercato, West Ham have offered Carlos Bacca an improved contract worth €4m/year plus bonuses.
Interestingly, Calciomercato say West Ham have also increased their offer to €32m for the player to AC Milan.
That doesn’t make too much sense, as West Ham had already agreed a fee with AC Milan, and personal terms with the player, and his preference for moving somewhere else, was the only stumbling block in the deal.
Bacca, however, is reportedly waiting for an offer from Arsenal or Sevilla, as he wants Champions League football. He seems to have been waiting for a while.
It is reported West Ham have matched Bacca’s request, and Calciomercato expect more developments today ‘that could lead to a twist’.
