Arsenal striker target talks about his future and it's very bad news for the Gunners


Milan striker Carlos Bacca has rubbished rumours claiming that he will leave the club to join Arsenal or Olympique de Marseille.

The Colombia international was not at his very best this season but continues to be one of the most wanted strikers during the summer transfer window.

But he declared that he wants to respect the contract he signed with the Rossoneri.

"I understand it was not my best season since I'm in Europe but this means I have to work harder," he told El Heraldo.

"I always scored at least 20 goals since playing in Europe, I failed last season but this is football. The World Cup is around the corner and I cannot afford to give an advantage [to other strikers].

"Leaving Milan? Rumours are always part of the summer but I'm happy here, I'm enjoying myself and still have three years left on my contract.

"So no, I'm not leaving and on July 5 I'll be available ahead of pre-season."
