Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca is more likely to join a Serie A side than move to the Premier League, according to his agent.
However Bacca's representative Sergio Barila reckons his client wants a Serie A switch, though any move won't be discussed until the conclusion of the Copa America.
"Carlos is deeply religious and, in Rome, there is the pope – and apart from that we are talking about one of the best clubs [Roma]," he told Corriere dello Sport.
"If Bacca were to leave Sevilla, it will not be for the money but a chance to play in the Champions League. We've already said no to lucrative offers out of China and the United Arab Emirates.
"We'll have a meeting with Sevilla after the tournament and look at what's on the table. Bacca is now totally focused on doing well with Colombia at the Copa America and is fine with, and grateful to, Sevilla, who helped him to be recognised at the international level.
The 28-year-old signed a new deal with the Primera Liga side five months ago – and there is a €25million (£18m) get-out clause.
