Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca could be on his way to the Premier League, according to Spanish expert Guillem Balague.
The Colombian has been heavily linked with Manchester United and Liverpool in numerous newspapers in recent weeks, after his heroics inspired Sevilla to their second successive Europa League crown last season.
United, also linked with Sergio Ramos and Bastian Schweinsteiger, are in the market for another goalscorer after they decided not to extend the stay of the misfiring Radamel Falcao, while rivals Liverpool need added firepower to get them back into the Champions League, after faltering in front of goal last campaign.
And Balague insisted that Bacca, currently on duty with Colombia at the Copa America in Chile, would be open to a move to our shores or Serie A, where he is also attracting admiring glances.
“Carlos Bacca at the end of the season told Sevilla he would like a way out,” Balague told Sky Sports News HQ.
“Sevilla would like him to stay, but he does know there is interest from the Premier League and Italy.
"He likes the idea of coming to the Premier League, of course he has been abroad for a few years and would be happy to continue that progression abroad.
"Although Sevilla expect an offer, it hasn't arrived yet."
