Report: West Ham out of Bacca race

It is reported that West Ham United have ended their interest in signing Milan forward Carlos Bacca.

The Colombian’s impressive form for the Rossoneri last season attracted the interest of several clubs around Europe, including the Hammers.

The San Siro club were supposedly willing to sell the 29-year-old to the Londoners, but Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain are now also reported to be interested in Bacca.

According to ESPN, the player’s preference would be to move to a club that can offer Champions League football.

Having not heard anything back from Bacca’s representatives after initial contact between the parties, West Ham are willing to admit defeat.
