Sevilla yet to receive Bacca offer

Bacca, who has scored 34 goals in 71 appearances since joining Sevilla two years ago from Club Brugge, is a reported target of Liverpool, Manchester United, Roma and AC Milan.

However, no club has yet to make an official bid for the 28-year-old – who is under contract with Sevilla for another three seasons and has a??35million euro buy-out clause.

“We have not received an official offer for Bacca,” Sevilla sporting director Monchi said on his club’s official website. “We are not in negotiations for any important player.

“I’m no fortune-teller but top strikers in the market there aren’t that many.

“Bacca has averaged 24.5 goals, 21 goals in his first season at the club and 28 in his second.

“I hope no one pays his buy-out clause.

“It’s a risk we take but we can’t do anything about that.

“We gave him a new contract 10 months ago and I believe he and his family are very happy here. But I cannot predict the future. “

Bacca was prolific in the Primera Division last season, scoring 20 goals in 37 appearances to help Sevilla finish fifth.

The former Atleico Junior player also scored seven goals in the Europa League, including two in last month’s final that saw Sevilla beat Dnipro 3-2 to win the competition for a record fourth time.

Bacca is currently on international duty at the Copa America in Chile.

Monchi is also keen to keep Krychowiak at the club next season.

The Poland international??is regarded as one of the best defensive midfielders in La Liga and has been linked with Manchester United and Arsenal this summer.

When asked about Krychowiak’s future, Monchi said: “I think the president and our vice-president have been crystal clear that the players who we consider important, which is the case of Krychowiak, are not going to leave unless their buy-out clause is paid.

“Those clubs that are interested in the player don’t have to call Sevilla, they just need to pay the buy-out clause directly.”

Krychowiak joined Sevilla from Reims last summer in a 4.5million euro switch.

The 25-year-old is under contract with Sevilla until June 2018 and his buy-out clause is set at 30million euros.
