Roma are desperate to make an impact in this summer transfer window.

According to the report in Italian Media, Patrik Schick had agreed a move to Juventus in June, but failed a medical due to a small cardiac issue, which has now been resolved but the two clubs couldn’t renegotiate the terms of the deal. Regarding to the same report the Czech Republic international should complete his transfer to Roma for a total 38 million euros over the next 24-48 hours. It’ll be a loan for 6 million euros with obligation to buy at the end of the season for another 30 million euros plus bonuses.

Having signed Patrik Schick for 4 million euros in the summer of 2016, to make a 34 million euros profit on the 21-year-old who, without question, will be fantastic for Sampdoria is a good deal all round.
