Bacca’s old club Sevilla are still favourites to re-sign the 30-year-old.
But his agent Sergio Barila told Caracol Radio: “Monaco called me to ask for information about the player’s situation.
“He has already been at Sevilla and knows La Liga well so there is a chance.
“If he does leave Milan and if Sevilla offers an important possibility, I think it will be evaluated in a calm manner.”
Barila said Bacca had turned down a move to China and could yet stay with Milan.
But Monaco are hungry for a big-name recruit this summer after losing Benjamin Mendy to Manchester City for £52million and fearing Mbappe’s exit.
