Arsenal will reportedly swoop for Manchester United target Carlos Bacca after having the Sevilla striker watched earlier this season.
According to The Metro, manager Arsene Wenger sent scouts to Spain to view the Colombian at close quarters and they were impressed with what they saw.

Wenger is now ready to sanction an offer for the £21.3m-rated Colombian, who scored 27 goals in all competitions this term, including two in the Europa League final.
United have also been credited with an interest in Bacca after opting out of a permanent deal for his compatriot Radamel Falcao.
But Wenger wants another striker to make the Gunners serious Premier League titles next season and is hopeful of beating the Red Devils to his signature.
