The agent of Carlos Bacca has hinted that the Colombian striker could move to Marseille this summer, as the French club have given up on Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud.

  • Bacca has been linked with Arsenal
  • The potential move could have implications for Olivier Giroud

Bacca has been heavily linked with a move for Arsenal in recent years, and this summer the South American was rumoured to be on his way to London.

According to talkSPORT, the 30-year-old is expected to leave Milan, with Arsenal and West Ham touted as possible destinations.

But his agent, Sergio Barilla, has recerntly thrown Marseille’s name into the mix and has hinted that a move could be possible.

“Ligue 1 has become an attractive league, as more and more clubs are trying to compete with Paris Saint-Germain,” he said.

“The presence of a great like Andoni Zubizarreta proves that OM have a serious and ambitious project.

“This is the World Cup year and Carlos wants to participate with his Colombia. That means he must choose a club that can guarantee him visibility.”

A move to Marseille could have implications on Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud, a player Marseille were interested in signing. Bacca’s potential arrival would make that move unlikely.
