Sampdoria reportedly want to bring Roma striker Patrik Schick back to the club in January.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Samp are ‘not abandoning’ the idea of a return for Schick and are ready to take him back on loan.
The Czech joined Roma from the Blucerchiati in the summer of 2017 for a club-record €42m, but he has struggled for form and fitness.
However, he did score 13 goals for Marco Giampaolo’s side during the 2016-17 campaign, while they could lose Fabio Quagliarella next month.
