Tottenham are in negotiations over a deal for AS Roma striker Patrick Schick, according to reports in Italy.
Schick is currently on loan at RB Leipzig and played against Spurs in the Champions League Round of 16 earlier this year, helping the German side to a 4-0 aggregate victory over Jose Mourinho’s men.
The 24-year-old Czech Republic international scored seven goals in 15 Bundesliga games before European football was put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic. He’ll have the chance to add to that tally when the German top-flight gets back underway next weekend.
But is there a chance he will be playing his football in England next season? Italian outlet LaRoma24.net claims Tottenham intermediaries are ‘working on’ negotiations with Roma over a deal for Schick.
It is believed Leipzig have an agreement in place to make their loan deal permanent for £25.6 million this summer, but they are apparently trying to bring Roma’s valuation down, which is where Spurs could come in.
A deal might depend on whether Tottenham are willing to spend almost £30 million on a player who will likely play second fiddle to Harry Kane.
