Mundo Deprotivo report that AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca is being considered as a possible transfer target by Barcelona.
The La Liga champions are keen to bolster their attacking options this summer, with manager Luis Enrique eager to have another striking focal point in his squad of players.
The Colombian would most likely be appearing from the bench regularly with Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar regarded as one of the most effective three-pronged attacks of all time.
Milan are known to want to keep hold of Bacca who had a good first season in Serie A, scoring 18 goals – though the club only finished in seventh place.
The publication reports that the forward could be seen as an alternative to Luciano Vietto of Atletico Madrid – securing a deal for the 22-year-old Argentine has proved difficult and he is likely to join Sevilla instead.
Bacca would be an experienced alternative for the Catalan club, having spent two seasons himself at Sevilla before heading to Italy. The 29-year-old was instrumental as the Spanish side won the Europa League in consecutive seasons.
Numerous other European clubs are reported to be interested in Milan’s striker, with West Ham said to be keen to bring him to the Premier League as they move into the Olympic Stadium for the new season.
Roma were also said to be keen on a move, though Milan are believed to want a transfer fee of at least €30m to part with their player, and they may wish to avoid selling to a direct rival.
