Leipzig had an option to buy Schick for €29m, which they did not want to pay and allowed to expire.
Die Roten Bullen would like Schick on a second loan deal, an idea that does not suit cash-strapped Roma.
According to BILD, Schick is ‘at the top’ of the club’s list of transfer targets and would cost around €20m.
If Peter Bosz’s side sell Chelsea target Kai Havertz for €100m, the money would definitely be there for Bayer to sign the Czech striker.
Schick was on Bayer’s radar last summer and talks were held about a swap deal for Leon Bailey.
