Schick leaves Sampdoria for AS Roma

Most promising Czech Republic forward Patrik Schick has signed a contract at AS Roma after an excellent debut season at Sampdoria FC. Schick managed to score 13 goals in 35 games (both Serie A and Coppa Italia) and provided 5 assists to his teammates.

Schick has impressed every football analyst this season with his ‘complete’ profile. He is fast, tall and has great feet. Some experts are already calling him the ‘new’ Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

I discovered Schick  in the 2015-16 season, when he was playing for Bohemians Prague on loan from Sparta Prague. You can read my scouting report from June 2016 here again.
