Bayer Leverkusen rival RB Leipzig for €20m Patrik Schick

Bayer Leverkusen have joined rivals RB Leipzig in the race to sign Patrik Schick from Roma, BILD reports.

Schick, 24, scored 10 goals in 22 Bundesliga matches on loan at Leipzig but they have yet to make his move permanent.

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.

AC Milan have been mentioned as suitors for Schick and Leverkusen have now also targeted him.

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.
