Boss Arsene Wenger steps up interest in world class striker by sending scouts to monitor him


Arsenal are being linked with a move for AC Milan and Colombia striker Carlos Bacca, The Daily Star has reported.

The Colombia international was already on Arsenal's radar during last summer's transfer window but he eventually decided to stay with the Rossoneri.

No Champions League football could however be a problem for the North Londoners since recent reports have claimed that the 30-year-old wants to play in Europe's most prestigious competition next season.

Meanwhile, Tutto Mercato Web has also revealed that the Gunners have sent scouts to monitor the player ahead of this summer's transfer window.

Bacca is one of the many strikers who could replace Alexis Sanchez if the Chilean leaves the club during the summer.
