AC Milan to sign Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca subject to medical

The ESPN FC experts discuss Carlos Bacca's possible transfer from Sevilla to AC MIlan, where Alejandro Moreno believes Bacca will be impressive at Milan.

AC Milan have announced that they have reached an agreement to sign Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca, subject to a medical.

Bacca, 28, who was also a target for Liverpool, had a €30 million buyout clause in his contract that Sevilla president Jose Castro insisted any interested parties would have to meet.

The forward confirmed earlier this week that he had agreed personal terms for a move to AC Milan, and the Serie A side have now confirmed the deal with the Europa League winners for the Colombia...

Colombia's James Rodriguez needs a rest - Rene Higuita

Rene Higuita says that tiredness is behind Colombia star James Rodriguez's subdued performances at the Copa America so far.

James, who scored six times at last summer's World Cup and sealed an €80 million move to La Liga giants Real Madrid, has yet to find the net as Colombia progressed to the last eight scoring just once in three group games.

Speaking ahead of Friday's Copa America quarterfinal against Argentina at the Estadio Sausalito in Vina del Mar, Colombia legend Higuita said that for...

Colombia is a Copa America contender

If Colombia's attack can play up to the level of its standout defense, it will be tough to beat.
If Colombia's attack can play up to the level of its standout defense, it will be tough to beat.

Of the seven remaining Copa America teams -- six quarterfinalists plus Chile, which advanced to the semis on Wednesday -- nobody is talking about Colombia as a title contender. The team is playing incredibly well defensively, having led all group-stage participants in tackles, interceptions, fewest shots conceded and fewest goals conceded, and has potent attacking talent in young playmakers like Real Madrid star James Rodriguez and experienced scorers such as Sevilla's Carlos Bacca.

Despite its defensive prowess, Colombia scored just one goal in Group C play and qualified for the quarterfinals as a third-place team in its group. This slow attacking start means Colombia will have to face Argentina in its quarterfinal, followed by the Brazil-Paraguay winner in order to reach the final and a potential meeting with Chile. This difficult path is contributing to oddsmakers' giving the Colombians around 10-to-1 odds to win the Copa America, and ESPN's Soccer Power Index-fueled Forecaster recently put its title likelihood at just 13 percent.

But Colombia's stout defense and attacking potential make it a dangerous underdog capable of stealing any remaining game in the knockout rounds. Here's a look at why Colombia is a Copa America title contender.
