RB Leipzig’s Patrik Schick ‘very attracted to England’/Claims Everton wanted him

Schick impressing in Germany

Patrik Schick has spent the past seven months plying his trade in the Bundesliga with RB Leipzig.

Schick signed for AS Roma in the summer of 2018 for a fee believed to be around £26m.

The 24-year-old didn’t have the most prolific time in the Italian capital, though, netting just five and assisting two in 32 outings.

However, since joining RB Leipzig on loan, Schick has experienced an upturn in form.

In 15 league outings this term, the Czech Republic international has netted seven and assisted two for Leipzig.

Schick eyeing England move

Now, with his Leipzig loan coming to an end, Schick looks to making plans for the future.

However, it doesn’t sound as though the forward sees himself returning to Roma.

When speaking in a recent interview, Schick stated that he feels ‘very attracted to England’.

Schick would also claim that a number of clubs, including Everton, were interested in him before he chose Leipzig:

“When I left the Czech Republic, my dream was to play in Italy and I achieved that. Now, I feel very attracted to England, to be honest.

“Leipzig was absolutely the right choice for my career. I had also talked to Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke here in Germany.

“In England, there were Everton and Crystal Palace, plus Valencia in Spain.

“I just felt that Leipzig wanted me more, and I was also attracted to the playing style of coach Julian Nagelsmann. I am sure that I made the right choice.” As quoted by the Daily Mail.
