Arsenal Linked With €35m Striker But Chairman Insists They Wont Sell

By on September 1, 2014

Sevilla chairman Jose Castro insists the club have no intention of selling star striker Carlos Bacca amid reports Arsenal are lining-up a bid for the €35m-rated hitman.

Reports last night claimed that we were set to make a bid in the region of €16m for the Colombian striker as Arsene Wenger looks to bring in another forward following the news Olivier Giroud will be out for four months.

However, Castro has responded the the rumours by insisting that Sevilla are yet to hear from any club and they wouldn’t entertain any offers for Bacca in any case.

“There aren’t bids for Bacca and we are not going to listen them. His salary increase is an internal matter and we are not going to talk about it.” source

Bacca is believed to have a buy-out clause worth €35m written into his contract so it seems Arsenal would have to meet that figure in order to stand a chance of signing the 27-year-old.

The South American enjoyed an excellent debut season at Sevilla last year, scoring 21 goals in all competitions, but it looks as though unless we’re prepared to pay his buy-out fee, we’ll have to keep looking for another striker.
