Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca is considering a move to a Serie A club according to his agent, dealing a blow to both Arsenal and Liverpool who have both been monitoring his situation.

Bacca has played a pivotal role for Sevilla in recent times, helping them win the Europa League last season before being paired with numerous clubs around Europe.
It is understood that his release clause is around €30m, but that doesn’t appear to be putting off many teams with Milan and Roma also joining the hunt to sign him.
“Is Italy a possibility?” Sergio Barila noted, as reported by Football Italia.
“In football you never know what could happen. Carlos is a top striker, and Italy is a top League. However, he has a contract with Sevilla, and there are other clubs in other countries interested.”
Barila added that his client guarantees goals for any team that he plays for, and his record over the years certainly backs up that argument.
Bacca has scored 191 goals in 365 appearances in all competitions during spells in Spain, Belgium and Colombia, and it is widely acknowledged that he would continue that streak if he was to secure a move to either England or Italy.
