Barca, Sevilla in Bacca hunt

Barcelona are set to rival Sevilla in hoping to tempt AC Milan's Colombia striker Carlos Bacca to La Liga, according to reports in Spain.

The 30-year-old is reportedly unsettled in Italy and favours a move back to Spain, and recently took in the Europa League winner's 2-1 victory over Valencia rather than watch the Rossoneri's match at Empoli when he was injured, before being seen talking to former Los Rojiblancos teammates during a training session.

Diario Gol reports Barca are keen on a move for the striker, who moved to San Siro in 2015, and are willing to offer Paco Alcacer – who they signed from Valencia only four months ago – as part of the deal.

The 23-year-old has endured a tough start to his time in Catalonia, failing to find the net in any of his first ten appearances for the club.

Estadio Deportivo report Sevilla still maintain a strong interest in re-signing Bacca – who scored 49 times in 108 appearances while in Andalucia – but that a move is 'very complicated' due to the economic position, although it does state that Milan may be willing to sell in January.
