carlos-bacca-ac-milanArsenal’s reported push to sign AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca could ruin Chelsea’s hopes of landing their own target this summer, according to reports.

The Gunners are thought to be keen on signing Bacca, who could leave Milan after just one season at the club.

Milan are said to be realistic about their chances of keeping to Colombia international, especially if they fail to secure Champions League football next season.

And Italian newspaper Tuttosport claim selling Bacca would force Milan into the transfer market, where they will upset Chelsea’s own plans.

According to the claims, Milan will push for Blues target Simone Zaza as soon as Bacca is sold.

Zaza, 24, is tipped to leave Juventus this summer after failing to lock down a regular slot in manager Massimiliano Allegri’s first XI.

Incoming Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is said to be a big fan of former Sassuolo forward Zaza, who is reportedly available for £24million.

But Milan could match any offer Chelsea make with the funds raised by Bacca’s sale.

Tuttosport claim the San Siro club could earn £28m from the Arsenal transfer, although the Gunners themselves are facing competition from Bayern Munich for 29-year-old Bacca.
