Arsenal are reportedly lining up a deadline day bid for striker Carlos Bacca, who plays for La Liga club Sevilla.

According to Goal, the Gunners are in the market for a striker and are looking at the Colombian international to solve their shortage of options up front.

It is believed that Bacca has a £27.6m release clause, but the Europa league champions are willing to do business with interested clubs and will allow him to leave for £12.5m.

Arsene Wenger will be keen to add another striker following the long-term injury sustained by Olivier Giroud and has admitted that he will be 'very active' on transfer deadline day.

Arsenal were heavily linked with a move for another French international in Loic Remy, but the Queens Park Rangers striker has chosen London rivals Chelsea over a move to the Emirates. The Blues confirmed the signing on Sunday, with the Frenchman signing a four-year deal.

The 27-year-old striker, who joined Sevilla last summer from Club Brugge, had an impressive debut season in the La Liga scoring 21 goals in all competitions and also playing a key role in the Spanish club's run to the Europa League title.

Everton were also linked to the striker earlier in the summer, and the report claims that Sevilla rejected a £6.3m bid for the Colombian international.

Meanwhile, Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey speaking following the 1-1 draw against Leicester City, felt that the Gunners were not clinical enough and did not take advantage of the lion's share of possession they enjoyed during the game.

"We just weren't clinical enough in front of goal today to convert the chances into goals," Ramsey said, as quoted on Arsenal's official site.

"They played well and defended very well, we had a lot of the ball and had some opportunities to break and chances to score but we didn't take them," the Welsh international added.
