Tottenham Still Keen To Sign Harry Kane Backup For £26m – Forward Scored 11 Goals And Assisted 3 More

Patrik Schick

Patrik Schick

Sampdoria forward Patrik Schick has had ups and downs this summer. In his maiden Serie A campaign, the Czech international scored a massive 11 goals and 3 assists and that saw him get linked with Italian champions Juventus. Tottenham were also in the picture, but Juventus showed a strong interest and even agreed on a £26million fee for the youngster.

But in a massive turn of an event, Juventus pulled themselves out of negotiation after the 21-year-old failed his medical due to a reported heart problem.

This might, in one way or the other, demoralise a player, but in Schick’s case, his failed move to Juventus gave him an extra edge, as according to Calciomercato, the Czech international has caught the attention of the fellow Serie A rivals Inter Milan and German champions Bayern Munich, who are in the race as well.

All these teams aside,  Czech publication Daily Sport has claimed that Tottenham have been keeping tabs on Schick since April and his failed medical means that they might well revive their interest in the 21-year-old. Tottenham had a perfect start to their Premier League campaign, but are yet to make a statement in the transfer market.

Patrik Schick

Schick had a £22.5million release clause in his current Sampdoria contract which was valid only until July 15th. And with that being said and done, Sampdoria now have all the rights to set an asking price and the fact that some of the best European clubs are in the hunt will allow them to rocket up the price.

“We would like to raise or remove his release clause, I often talk with his agent and I’ll go back to it soon. I want to avoid mockery. Sampdoria owner Massimo Ferrero told Secolo XIX, relayed by talkSPORT, a month back.

“I would like to bring his clause up to €50m (£42m) but obviously we need to review the boy’s contract.”

Tottenham, with Champions League to play for, need to add a sustainable depth. Schick will not only add that but will improve our attacking unit as well. However, it now remains to be seen whether Daniel Levy decides to spend on Schick or not.
