Patrik Schick appears to have ruled out leaving Bayer Leverkusen despite interest from Premier League giants Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United, speaking to YOUNG.
As Schick beats Scotland at Euro 2020 – producing for his very own Puskas Prize nominee a 50-yard lap that will give David Marshall a nightmare for eternity – It seemed like it was only a matter of time until West Ham showed up.
Over the past two years, The Hammers have signed no less than three Czech Republic internationals – Tomas Soucek, Vladimir Coufal and Alex Kral.
And given David Moyes’ desire for a new nine, one capable of relieving the burden of overworked Michail Antonio, Schick seemed to have ticked every possible box.
Is Patrik Schick the solution for the West Ham striker?
Schick succeeded in transforming stunning Euro 2020 form onto the club stage, scoring 17 goals in 19 games in the best season of his career.
He even became the first Leverkusen player to score four goals in a single Bundesliga match during the dismantling of Greuther Furth 7-1 December.
Thus, few people will be surprised when Mirror It was reported a few weeks ago that West Ham were looking to buy Schick for £40m.
Based on 90 million wonTottenham, Arsenal, Manchester City and Everton are also fans of the former Juventus player
Though boasting with care, Schick doesn’t look like a man packing his bags and making his way to Cologne Airport.
“Of course, it’s interesting when you’re associated with the big clubs,” said the 6ft 3ins centre-back, who rather often uses the phrase “good touch for a big man”.
“But I am really, very happy at Leverkusen and I want to go to the Champions League with Bayer 04. I love living in Germany.
“I don’t think about other clubs. Everyone knows my contract situation (his current contract runs until 2025). And I would never cause problems for a club and push for a transfer. ”
Czech billionaire Daniel Kretinsky bought a 27% stake in West Ham in November. One would imagine that he would relish the prospect of bringing his nation’s most iconic footballer to the London Stadium.
However, doing so will be easier than doing.
