Schick part of Alderweireld proposal

Roma will meet Tottenham Hotspur for Toby Alderweireld and could use Patrik Schick as part of an exchange deal.

According to Il Tempo newspaper and Sky Sport Italia, director of sport Gianluca Petrachi will meet the Belgium international defender’s agent on Thursday.

A meeting is already set up for Friday between London-based Roma consultant Franco Baldini and the Spurs directors.

Sportitalia maintain striker Schick could be used as part of the proposal, as Tottenham have shown interest in the 23-year-old Czech international.

Alderweireld is a 30-year-old centre-back who can also play on the right side of defence, but he has a €28m release clause in his contract, which is valid only until July 31.
