AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca’s agent has remained coy on speculation that his client has until Friday to respond to West Ham’s offer.

The transfer saga surrounding the Colombian has rumbled on for weeks despite West Ham agreeing a fee with AC Milan last month for the signature of the 29-year-old striker.

Bacca has already knocked back the Hammers twice this summer, but West Ham got back on track with the chase last week when it emerged that the Colombian is warming up to the idea of moving to London.

The striker was expected to provide an answer by today, but West Ham have extended the deadline until Friday to provide more leeway to Bacca to ponder about his future.

His agent, Sergio Barila, revealed that all negotiations with West Ham are currently calm, but refused to confirm whether Friday is the deadline the club have set for Bacca’s answer.  


When asked about West Ham’s interest, the agent told Italian outlet Tutto Mercato: “At the moment everything is calm.”

On the Friday deadline speculation, Barila said: “I cannot talk about it.

“Let’s wait and see what happens.”

Bacca scored 20 goals in all competitions for AC Milan last season, and has been wanting to join a Champions League club this summer.
