Carlos Bacca’s experience at AC Milan is close to an end being the Colombian striker negotiating a transfer to West Ham.
The Hammers have offered € 30 million to sign the former Sevilla man who is now in talks with the Premier League club.
Bacca’s request is € 4.5 million a year and negotiations between the two parties are ongoing.
The rossoneri are already looking for a replacement of the 30-year-old striker who netted 20 goals in all competitions in his first season in Italy. Gianluca Lapadula is already training with the rest of the team in Milanello, having completed his move to AC Milan from Pescara last month.
Genoa’s Leonardo Pavoletti tops the rossoneri wishlist. The Italian striker netted 15 goals in 26 games last term and is the classic centre forward who could replace a static striker like Carlos Bacca.
Manolo Gabbiadini is another name monitored by the Serie A club. Gabbiadini wants to leave Napoli to get more game time somewhere else and is also on Inter’s sights.
The third name included in Galliani’s shortlist is Edin Dzeko. Although the Bosnia and Herzegovina striker is not going to leave AS Roma unless he receives an offer of a top European club.
AS Roma and AC Milan are on very good terms, with the two clubs having completed the transfers of Romangoli, Bertolacci and El Shaarawy in the last 12 months, so negotiations between them could be pretty easy.
Inter could make an offer for Dzeko if Mauro Icardi leaves.
