Carlos Bacca has set his sights on winning Serie A following his move to Italian giants AC Milan.

The Colombian enjoyed a stellar couple of seasons with Sevilla, helping Los Rojiblancos to win successive Europa League titles but has now left the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan for the San Siro.

It has been a difficult few years for the Rossoneri, with problems off the field seeing them lose ground on their traditional rivals, most notably Juventus who have won Serie A in each of the last four seasons.

The situation has sparked the Milan board into action, with Bacca amongst a number of recent arrivals at the club.

Sinisa Mihajlovic’s appointment as Head Coach a month ago means more new faces are expected in the coming weeks and the 28-year-old believes it is only a matter of time before “the biggest club in Italy” return to the top.

“I chose Milan because their project convinced me,” Bacca told Cancha Ecuador. “They want to return to the top in Europe. I went there because I like challenges, and playing in the Champions League with Milan is definitely that.

“I’m very motivated and I want to replicate what I did with Sevilla. I want to give my contribution in awaking the sleeping beauty that is Milan, we want to aim for the Champions League and challenge for the Scudetto.

“It’s clear to me that Milan are the biggest club in Italy, but to succeed we’ll have to compete with Juventus, Inter, Roma and Lazio.”

With no European football to worry about, Milan can afford to focus solely on domestic matters and are currently 13.00 to win Serie A this season, with current champions Juve the massive favourites at 1.53.
