Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wants to add firepower to his contingent in the January transfer window and has opened talks with AC Milan over the potential £20 million signing of Carlos Bacca, according to The Sun.

The Gunners thrashed West Ham United 5-1 on Saturday to keep their Premier League title push intact but have injuries to contend with in the final third.

All three of Danny Welbeck, Olivier Giroud and Lucas Perez are all currently not he sidelines through injury, leaving Alexis Sanchez as the only recognised number nine for the North London side.

Bacca has been linked with a move to the Premier League in the past, most-recently rejecting a summer switch to West Ham ahead of the current campaign.

The report suggests that Arsenal have already started talking to Milan about a January deal, with the Italians hoping to sell the South American to raise funds to buy other players.

Bacca recently trained with former club Sevilla without the consent of his current employers, which has cast major doubts over his future at San Siro.
