Carlos Bacca is likely to stay with AC Milan this summer after West Ham United took their €30m offer for the striker off the table.

The Hammers have been chasing the Colombian for much of the summer and agreed a €30m deal with AC Milan for the player.

But Bacca has been hard for West Ham to pin down as he continually stalled on their proposals and knocked them back, leading to the Premier League club working overtime to convince the Colombia international to move to the Olympic Stadium.

Now, in another twist, it appears the Hammers have lost patience.

According to Italian daily Gazzetta dello Sport, the Hammers have now taken their €30m offer for Bacca off the table and called off their pursuit of the striker.


Bacca is now expected to stay put at the San Siro and will bid to build on his form from last season, which saw him net 20 goals in all competitions for the Italian giants.

However, with time left in the transfer window there could still be further twists and turns regarding the striker, who AC Milan were willing to sell.
