Leverkusen set to sign AS Roma forward Schick

Bayer Leverkusen are poised to spend some of the money from Kai Havertz's transfer to Chelsea with Czech centre-forward Patrik Schick reportedly undergoing a medical at the Bundesliga club on Tuesday.

After also selling striker Kevin Volland to Monaco last week, Leverkusen, who finished fifth in the Bundesliga last season, are set to sign Schick, 24, from AS Roma on a five-year contract.

The transfer is worth around 25 million euros ($30 million), according to magazine Kicker.

Schick spent last season on loan at RB Leipzig, scoring 10 goals in 28 games.

The Czech Republic international played the second-half of their 3-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the semi-final of the Champions League.
