Roma's Schick closing in on RB Leipzig loan with €28m option to buy

The striker is set to swap the Stadio Olimpico for the Red Bull Arena and reports suggest Nikola Kalinic could replace him in Italy
Roma's Patrik Schick is closing in on a season-long loan move to RB Leipzig, with Goal able to confirm that the Bundesliga side have an option to purchase the forward at the end of the loan deal for a fee in the region of €28 million (£25m/$31m).
The Giallorossi are yet to sign a new striker in the summer window, instead focusing on defensive and midfield reinforcements in the form of Leonardo Spinazzola (Juventus), Pau Lopez (Real Betis), Bryan Cristante (Atalanta) and Amadou Diawara (Napoli).
Roma have, however, been linked with an interest in Atletico Madrid's Nikola Kalinic, now 31, with the Liga side seemingly deeming the Croatian striker surplus to requirements at the Wanda Metropolitano following the arrivals of Alvaro Morata and Joao Felix.
