Bacca has been linked with moves to Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham, however his agent has hinted that the Colombian could make a move to the Stadio Olimpico.
Sergio Barila says the 28-year-old will not make a move for financial reasons, rather that he wants to play Champions League football next season.
Barila told the Corriere dello Sport that his deep religious connections may sway him to join the Serie A runners-up.
“Carlos is deeply religious. And in Rome, there is the pope. And apart from that we are talking about one of the best clubs [Roma],” he is quoted as saying by The Daily Mail.
“If Bacca were to leave Sevilla, it will not be for the money, but a chance to play in the Champions League.”
Bacca scored 28 goals in 53 appearances to help Sevilla to a second successive Europa League crown and a fifth-placed La Liga finish.
