​AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca suffered a thigh injury during the club's thrilling 2-2 Derby della Madonnina draw with Inter Milan, the Serie A side ​has confirmed

The Colombian forward, signed from Sevilla in 2015, now faces a spell on the sidelines with the club saying he suffered a flexor strain to his right thigh, with further examinations set to take place next week. 

The 30-year-old was forced to leave the pitch after 71 minutes on Sunday night after setting up Suso for Milan's second goal. Bacca has scored six times in 13 appearances for the Rossoneri this season but has not found the net since October 2. 

The news comes shortly after rumours surfaced online linking the striker with a move to Paris Saint-Germain in January, which would reunite him with his former Sevilla manager Unai Emery.

Bacca helped Sevilla to back-to-back Europa League successes, including scoring twice in the 2015 final against Dnipro. The player has previously expressed a desire to play Champions League football and, although Milan are on track to qualify for next season's competition - they currently lie 3rd in Serie A - he may look to join the Ligue 1 champions. 

The striker is believed to have a less than harmonious relationship with Milan boss Vincenzo Montella, with Bacca reacting angrily to being substituted during a recent win over Pescara.
