Arsenal and Tottenham are once again looking to strengthen their strike-force even after signing the likes of Lucas Perez and Vincent Janssen respectively last summer.
According to reports (Daily Mail), the North London rivals are ready to battle for the signature of Czech international and Sampdoria striker Patrik Schick.
As far as Spurs are concerned, they badly needed someone, who could cover in the absence of Harry Kane and also support him up front and they ended up signing Janssen.
Unfortunately, Dutch striker has failed to shine for Tottenham and manager Mauricio Pochettino must solve the conundrum by signing a new goal-scorer in the summer transfer window.
He left Sparta Prague to join the Serie A club last summer. The 21-year-old star has progressed brilliantly for the Italian side this season and has the potential to become a top quality striker.
So far, he has only started 6 games for Sampdoria in the current campaign and directly contributed in no fewer than 11 goals (9 goals and 2 assists).
He made his senior international debut for Czech Republic in May 2016 against Malta, scored a goal and provided an assist in his team’s 6-0 victory. As per the provided Daily Mail link, Patrik has a release clause of 21 million pounds ($26million) in his contract.
