West Ham have Bacca deal

West Ham apparently have a deal with Milan for Carlos Bacca, whom they'll meet next week, but reports are somewhat conflicting.

The Hammers had already been linked to the Colombian as they allegedly made an offer of €30m.

There appears to be some disagreement within the media as to the exact status of this potential transfer, and in particular insofar as the relationship between the interested parties is concerned. claim that the two clubs have already reached an agreement, and they cite Sky Sports to back their argument. MilanNews corroborates that claim, saying that it is being reported by English media.

However most British newspapers only report that there is an offer on the table, not an agreement.

All sources agree that there will be a meeting between West Ham and the player's representatives, to take place within one week at the very latest.

If the two parties find an agreement then there is no need for Milan's consent, as they can simply activate the Colombian's buy-out clause.
