Everton to move for Sevilla's Carlos Bacca?

Everton boss Roberto Martinez is reportedly lining up a bid for Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca if Romelu Lukaku does not sign for the club on a permanent basis.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez is reportedly lining up a move for Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca if he fails to agree a permanent deal for Romelu Lukaku.

The Toffees boss is said to be desperate to sign Lukaku from Chelsea on a permanent contract after an impressive loan spell this season, but the move could fall through if Everton fail to finish in the top four of the Premier League.

According to The Mirror, Colombian international Bacca has attracted the interest of Martinez after scoring 14 goals in 24 La Liga games for Sevilla this season.

Everton will reportedly step up their interest in the 27-year-old after learning that he has a £9m release clause in his contract.

Bacca joined Sevilla from Club Brugge in July 2013.
