Carlos Bacca wants to be guaranteed pay parity with Dimitri Payet before he agrees to a £25m switch to West Ham, according to reports.
The Daily Mail claim that the AC Milan striker wants to double his wages to £120,000 a week before he will become the Hammers’ record transfer.
West Ham are desperate for a marquee striker signing to grace their new Olynpic Stadium home, having missed out on Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi and possibly being priced out of a move for Alexandre Lacazette, who could join Arsenal.
Colombian striker Bacca scored 18 goals in Serie A last season but new Milan manager Cristian Brocchi is said to be keen to build his own team.
West Ham reportedly face competition from Atletico Madrid for the 29-year-old who previously played with Sevilla.
Carlos Bacca would be an excellent signing. Prime of his career. So what if he's the wrong side of 25? Far more important factors in play.
