REPORT: Forget Falcao, Arsenal To Sign Another Top Colombian Forward

According to the latest reports, Arsenal are planning to make a bid for Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca on the deadline day.

Arsenal are still undefeated this season, but they have already dropped 4 crucial points in the title race. Injury to Olivier Giroud, who is set to miss rest of the year with an ankle injury, means, the gunners definitely need to buy a forward before the transfer deadline.

After missing out on  Loic Remy to Chelsea, Arsenal turn their attention to Carlos Bacca, who is valued around £12.5million in the market. Last season, Bacca scored 21 times, helping Sevilla to win the Europa League in the process. Bacca will be a decent backup striker for Arsenal. He has good dribbling and finishing skills.

Next 24 hours will tell the full story but it looks like Arsene Wenger is  gearing up for a hectic deadline day in north London.
