Arsenal reportedly face competition from Marseille for AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca.

  • Marseille are interested in the Colombian
  • They’re willing to pay him €4m per year
  • Bacca is one of several strikers linked with Arsenal

According to the Mirror, the Colombian striker could leave AC Milan for €20m this summer and Arsenal and Ligue 1 side Marseille are at the front of the queue for his signature.

Arsenal have been linked with Bacca on numerous occasions as they seek to strengthen their frontline for next season.

Bacca has an impressive scoring record with both Sevilla and AC Milan, but his advancing age might mean he’s not be too high on Arsenal’s list.

Marseille are also interested and are prepared to pay him €4m a year, an offer Arsenal might be reluctant to match.

Bacca is just one of several strikers that have been linked with Arsenal over the years.

With Arsenal’s interest seemingly fixed on Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette, it appears that Bacca won’t be joining Arsenal this summer either.
