Sky: AC Milan join race for Sampdoria star Schick

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have joined the race for highly-rated Sampdoria striker Patrik Schick, reports claim.

This is according to Sky, who claim that a meeting took place on Wednesday in Milan between the two clubs.

The negotiations begun with the Rossoneri attempting to include Gianluca Lapadula in a swap deal (plus cash), but Sampdoria rejected such a proposal and want their valuation of the 21-year-old exclusively in cash.

This is not the first time Milan have been linked with a move for the Czech starlet, as reports from Calciomercato in February stated that there was a three-way race.

“I don’t deny that Inter, Milan and Juventus are interested,” Schick’s agent Bruno Satin told Calciomercato. 

“Our job is to speak to the most important clubs, those who play or want to play in the Champions League.

“Then again, he has a deal with Sampdoria and all will depend on that,” Tramacere added.
