Newcastle United fans can drool as much as they want over Roma striker Patrik Schick – it does not look as though he is heading to Tyneside this summer. Sky Sports Italy journalist Gianluca Di Marzio reported on Wednesday that Newcastle had made an offer to sign Schick, 23, on loan from the Serie A giants but were rejected by the Czech Republic international. It is understood that he is holding out for a move to Borussia Dortmund, so who can blame him? Dortmund are one of the most exciting teams in European football and have the ability to win silverware next season. Newcastle will no doubt be in a fight for survival in the Premier League. Schick has struggled at Roma and scored just eight goals in 58 total appearances across two seasons in the Italian capital. However these Newcastle fans are looking past his Stadio Olimpico struggles and instead see the player who was brimming with potential during his days at Sampdoria. It’s unfortunate that he won’t be heading to Tyneside to potentially revive his career, but at the same time, he might have been a bullet that has been dodged.
