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.
