After his loan spell with RB Leipzig ended, Roma striker Patrik Schick has made it clear that he wants to continue his career in Germany.
German website sport1.de has reported this afternoon that Bayer Leverkusen is pushing to close the deal with Roma for the Czech attacker on a permanent deal after talks with RB Leipzig stalled.
Reportedly, the Bundesliga side is ready to pay €22 million to the Giallorossi for the ex-Sampdoria striker.
The German side’s sporting director, Rudi Völler, has tabbed Schick as the ideal summer reinforcement but first he must sell want-away striker Kevin Volland.
Schick joined Roma in the summer of 2017 and is the most expensive purchase in the club’s history at €42 million.
