According to a report from Gazzetta, AS Roma’s Patrik Schick could be heading to the Premier League this summer.
The Czech international is currently on loan in Germany with RB Leipzig. Julian Nagelsmann’s side had an option to buy him permanently but that expired on the 15th of June.
Leipzig could have signed him outright for £21.5 million or through two instalments of £13 million each. That no longer is on the table and it looks like the Germans aren’t willing to fork out that kind of money this summer.
Roma need to sell him this summer for financial reasons. The Italian giants are willing to discuss with any club but they will not sell him for less than £23.3 million.
That has alerted multiple clubs in the Premier League who have been impressed with Schick’s performances this season.
Everton are interested in signing the striker but they will only make the move if Moise Kean leaves.
Newcastle United have expressed an interest in signing Schick too but the Magpies’ preferred option at the moment is Lazio’s Ciro Immobile.
Tottenham too have asked for information according to the report. Spurs have been on the lookout for a backup to Harry Kane for a while now and the Czech international would be a very good signing.
Schick has scored 10 times in the Bundesliga in just 14 starts. That is an incredible return for someone who is still 24, and it is no surprise that multiple clubs are looking at him.
The striker’s preference, according to the report, is to remain at Leipzig but the Bundesliga club are yet to take a call.
Tottenham, Everton and Newcastle are all placed very well to table a bid for him but nothing is likely to happen until the end of the current Premier League season.
