The agent of Milan striker Carlos Bacca remains coy about whether his player is heading for the Premier League this summer to join West Ham United.
Speaking exclusively to calciomercato.com, Sergio Barila explained that; "First of all, we are waiting to see what will happen at the club. We need to know what Milan’s project will be. Then, we will be able to evaluate what will be the best for Carlos. It’s normal that he has many suitors”.
When it was put to him that the Hammers looked to be an option for next season he replied; "Now we must be calm and wait”, he added.
“Now, there is nothing concrete and I can’t say much about this subject”.
The Italian giants are currently the subject of a proposed takeover bid from a Chinese consortium. President Silvio Berlusconi must decide whether to sell his controlling stake in the club and an announcement is expected very soon.
The 29-year-old Colombian joined the Rossoneri last summer for just under £30m, but after another disappointing season for the club (despite Bacca's contribution of 18 goals) which has left them out of a European competition next term, the player is considering his next move.
West Ham are seeking a new striker and have already made unsuccessful advances towards Juve's Italian international Simone Zaza. Calciomercato.com recently broke the news that representatives from the club had made initial contact with Bacca's agent.
