Everton are considering the option of signing Carlos Bacca from AC Milan as Ronald Koeman continues his shopping spree in the transfer market. Everton recently scalped Jordan Pickford from Sunderland and Davy Klaassen from Ajax and are on the way to their third signing as they are planning a possible swoop for Carlos Bacca.

The Toffees are in the state of a transition as the Dutch manager is assessing every aspect of the club and has chalked out a number of players as his potential targets. The Merseyside club is set to lose Romelu Lukaku as the Belgian is reportedly being chased by Chelsea and Manchester United.

Everton hierarchy have been to Italy recently as they have been monitoring the development of the player. They had held talks with the Italian club authority and it seems they are ready to push the deal through.

West Ham United were in the line to seal a deal for the player back in 2016 and even had terms agreed but a last minute back out from the striker foiled the move. He preferred to stay at the San Siro citing family reasons as the cause for his rejection.

The player who will turn 31 in September has been one of the most prolific goal poachers in the European circuit. His goal scoring prowess secured him a move to Milan and he continued his form for the Italian side. His form has dipped a bit this term but still, he is regarded among the top strikers in the Europe.

The Colombian international would definitely favour a move to the Goodison Park after the recent emergence of the Toffees. Billionaire owner Farhad Moshiri is leaving no stone unturned to turn the club into one of the powerhouses of English football.

However assuming that Bacca won’t be in his prime for a much longer time, the Toffees would be reluctant to spend a large chunk of money for a player who will be the direct replacement of outgoing Lukaku. Milan have recently signed Andre Silva so Bacca’s move could be very realistic for the club.

A number of clubs including the likes of Sevilla, Marseille and Valencia are ready to engineer a move for the player. Sevilla are ready to welcome their former player as they are preparing for the next season.

Milan will be demanding a fee expected to be in the range of €20m and Everton should be able to match up the value.
