RB Leipzig forward, Patrick Schick, has revealed that he is keen on a move to the Premier League amidst reported interest from Tottenham.
Schick featured in both legs as he helped Leipzig thrash an injury-stricken Spurs team 4-0 on aggregate in the Champions League round of sixteen this season.
The Czech Republic international has enjoyed a decent return in his first Bundesliga season with seven goals in fifteen appearances (transfermarkt) but he has found playing time hard to come by at the Red Bull Arena.
The forward has now revealed that he had a chance to move to England last summer before deciding to join Leipzig, but admitted that he is attracted to the Premier League.
Speaking to iSport.cz, Schick said: “When I left the Czech Republic, my dream was to play in Italy and I achieved that.
“Now, I feel very attracted to England, to be honest.”

“In England, there were Everton and Crystal Palace, plus Valencia in Spain (who wanted him last summer).
“I just felt that Leipzig wanted me more, and I was also attracted to the playing style of coach Julian Nagelsmann. I am sure that I made the right choice.”
Spurs Web Opinion
While Schick is not likely to pull up any trees at Spurs, he is a consistent performer who could be a useful squad option for us. He will give us something different with his ability to hold the ball up. However, I don’t see why he will want to join us just to play second fiddle to Harry Kane.
