Patrik Schick is moving closer to remaining at RB Leipzig on a permanent basis.
Sky Sport reports that the Giallorossi and the German side are nearing an agreement that will see the attacker join the club permanently. Schick joined Leipzig in the latter stages of last summer’s transfer window on loan with an option to buy for €29 million.
After an initial slow start, Schick collected 7 goals and 2 assists in 15 appearances as the Germans are now prepared to activate the clause to keep him.
Both Schick and his agent have made it no secret that they would like his loan move to become a permanent deal — which appears to be where things are headed.
