Leipzig open Schick talks, but...

RB Leipzig have opened talks with Roma over a possible deal for Patrik Schick, but Fiorentina, Atalanta and Sampdoria are also reportedly interested.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Leipzig are keen to bring in Schick on a season-long loan with an option to buy.

A move to the Bundesliga could appeal to the Czech, given he was previously linked with Borussia Dortmund.

However, Calciomercato.it warns there is also interest from three Serie A sides – Fiorentina, Atalanta and Samp.

The Viola’s sporting director Daniele Prade helped take the 23-year-old to the Blucerchiati in 2016, while the Dea can offer him Champions League football.

Finally, he could return to his former club, where he scored 13 goals in 35 appearances during the 2016-17 campaign.
