West Ham snubbed by striker

West Ham have been dealt a major blow in their pursuit of forward Carlos Bacca, reports Calcio Mercato.

The Hammers had agreed a fee with AC Milan over the transfer for the striker, according to the sown of Hammers co-chairman David Sullivan:

However, despite the clubs agreeing a reported £25million fee, Bacca hasn’t accepted the personal terms offered to him by the London club, and has suggested he only wants to play for a team competing in the Champions League this season.

Both PSG and Napoli are interested in Bacca, who turned down an offer of £3.7million-a-year to play for the Hammers.

Slaven Bilic’s side have been heavily linked with strikers this summer, as they look to bolster their squad. But once again they’ve missed on a target, after failing to sign Michy Batshuayi earlier in the window.

The Hammers begin their qualifying campaign for the UEFA Europa League this week, before kicking off their new Premier League season away at Chelsea on August 15th.
