Arsenal are preparing an offer for AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca, according to reports in the Italian press.
The Rossoneri are understood to be happy to let the Colombian player leave in the January transfer window, with the 30-year-old having scored just six league goals so far this season.
Arsene Wenger is looking to improve his attacking options ahead of the title run-in in the second half of the season.
And reports claim that the Gunners boss sees the Colombia international as the right addition to his squad.
AC Milan coach Vincenzo Montella has also failed to rule out the striker’s exit two weeks ago.
‘Can Bacca leave in January? I’m sorry to disappoint you, but it’s too early to talk about it,’ he said.
‘We won’t talk about the market. For now, Bacca is a Milan player.’
