Marseille increase bid for out-of-favour striker Bacca

By Oliver Fisher -

Marseille have reportedly upped their bid for out-of-favour AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca.

Last week Rossoneri boss Vincenzo Montella confirmed the Colombian will exit the San Siro, and the Ligue 1 giants have already had several meetings with AC Milan to discuss a possible deal, widespread reports suggest.

According to France Football, Marseille have made an improved € 15 million bid to sign Bacca.

AC Milan, however, expect a fee of €25million for the 31-year-old, and the latest offer of Marseille is likely to be rejected by the Rossoneri.

The player has already given his green light to move to South France but there is still no agreement between the two clubs.

Bacca has spent two years at the San Siro, where he moved in summer 2015 for €30million.

The new ownership have already secured the signing of young Porto striker Andre Silva and are expected to bring in another centre-forward, with Nikola Kalinic and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang being linked with a move to the San Siro.
