Czech striker Schick joins Juve

Patrik Schick, Roma

Patrik Schick is set to join Italian champions Juventus from Sampdoria after arriving in Turin for a medical.

The 21-year-old Czech Republic international will reportedly cost Juve €25m after impressing with 11 goals from 32 Serie A appearances last season.

The Bianconeri, along with Inter Milan, had reportedly been following Schick’s progress even before he joined Samp from Sparta Prague last season, and have snapped him up by activating his release clause.

Schick will now have to compete with Gonzalo Higuain, Paulo Dybala, and Mario Mandzukic for a place in the starting XI.
