Goal are reporting that Arsenal are set to make a formal offer for Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca as the club look to seal a deadline day deal for the Colombian international.
The 27-year-old’s buy-out clause is set at €35 million [£27.6m] by the report suggests that Sevilla are willing to do business at nearer €16m [£12.5m], which would give the La Liga club a sizeable profit on the €7m [£5.5m] they spent on the striker last summer.
Bacca enjoyed an excellent debut season at the club, scoring 21 times in all competitions having netted 28 goals in 45 appearances for Club Brugge in the two seasons before his move to Spain.
