Arsenal want to make AC Milan star Wenger’s next signing – report

Arsenal want to sign Carlos Bacca from AC Milan this summer, according to reports

Arsenal are set to turn their attentions towards signing Carlos Bacca from AC Milan in the summer transfer window, according to reports in the British media.

The Telegraph is claiming that the north London side have now moved ahead of West Ham United in the race for Bacca’s signature this summer.

The forward scored 18 goals in 38 league games last season for the Serie A outfit and is now being linked with a move to The Emirates.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has already signalled his intention to bolster his attacking line-up at The Emirates with the club’s failed bid to sign Jamie Vardy from Leicester City earlier in the summer.

Now, it appears that the north London club could be ready to turn to Bacca as they look to strengthen their attacking options ahead of the 2016-17 campaign.

Arsenal have already signed midfielder Granit Xhaka and striker Takuma Asano in the current summer transfer window.
