​Arsenal are set to battle Marseille in the race to sign AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca, ​the Mirror have reported.


The Gunners are believed to be looking for a new striker to strengthen their attack this summer, and the Colombian forward has emerged as a target.


Milan are reportedly willing to sell the 30-year-old for a fee of around £20m, but Arsenal will have to match Marseille's contract offer of €4m per year.

Bacca, who scored 13 goals in 32 Serie A appearances last season, now faces an uncertain future at Milan following the £35m arrival of striker Andre Silva.


The former Sevilla forward has also reportedly attracted interest from PSG, and his agent Sergio Barila recently admitted that Bacca could be set to exit the San Siro.


"Carlos wants to continue in Europe at a good level," Barila told ​FootMercato"He has had offers from outside Europe, but he told me that those don't interest him. He cares about the sporting side.

"The economic side is not a priority for him at this time, even though there are non-European markets where big investments are being made.


"We are calm at the moment and we have not talked about anything with Milan for now. The transfer market has just started and no one knows what is going to happen in a long summer. The player has three years of contract with Milan.

​​"He wants to play as many matches as possible. He has been asked for by several big European clubs and we will study everything quietly."


With Alvaro Morata another rumoured target for Milan, it looks like Bacca's days at the San Siro are numbered.
