If Arsenal want to sign Sampdoria striker, Patrik Schick, they’re going to have to act quickly.

While Arsenal, Inter Milan, Borussia Dortmund and Napoli have all been linked with Schick in recent weeks, Juventus appear to be leading the race and are prepared to trigger the 21-year-old’s €25m release clause after the Champions League final on 3 June.

According to Italian outlet, Gazzetta dello Sport [via Sport Witness], Czech Republic legend and Juventus vice-chairman, Pavel Nedved, who has confirmed the Old Lady’s interest in Schick, has talked the young Czech international into a move.

However, there’s still time for Arsenal to act if they want their man, since Juve are currently going to be concentrated on the Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Schick has scored 11 Serie A goals in 33 appearances this season.

His contract with Sampdoria runs out in 2020.
