AC Milan have announced a deal to sign Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca, with the two teams having agreed on a transfer fee.

The Serie A side have been in talks with the Colombian in recent weeks whilst he was away with his national team in Chile for the Copa America, and they have now officially announced the deal pending the player passing a medical.

Move Expected

Bacca had been strongly linked with a move away from La Liga and Sevilla, but it was expected he'd join a Premier League team, with Manchester United and Liverpool supposedly interested in signing the 28-year-old.

However, it has now been confirmed by Milan that the Colombian international will be a AC player come next season as long as he passes a medical at the club, one that is expected to take place later today.

Transfer Fee Agreed

Sevilla will receive £21.5million for the deal, which was the release clause in Bacca's contract, meaning the La Liga side could not reject the bid and had to allow the striker to make his own decision.

Despite interest being shown in England, the striker has opted for a move to Italy after successfully guiding Sevilla to back-to-back Europa League wins.

Busy Summer for Milan

As for Milan, they are expected to have a busy summer as they look to bring the glory days back to the San Siro, along with Inter Milan, and Bacca could be just the start for Sinisa Mihajlovic, who took over this summer.

Paris Saint-Germain's star-striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been linked with a transfer, with Borussia Dortmund centre-back Mats Hummels also a reported target of Mihajlovic.

However, the Bacca deal is the only formal one done so far, with the club sending out a tweet on their official Twitter page.

Announcement Made

It read: "Agreement reached with @SevillaFC_ENG for the transfer of @carlos7bacca, depending on Bacca passing the medical tests."
