RB Lepzig striker Patrik Schick isn't interested in going anyway and would like to remain with the East German club next season. The Czech striker scored 10 goals in all competitions and is looking to expand his playing time, especially with Timo Werner no longer around as competition.
"I want to stay here the most," said Schick. "I believe in the team, in the coach's philosophy. I like his way of playing football. I think we have the quality to play for the Bundesliga title and we play in the Champions League, so everything fits."
Schick joined RB Leipzig on loan from AS Roma and made an impact mostly off the bench. He did see more minutes later in the year after Yussuf Poulsen's ankle injury and appears to be a major option for Nagelsmann should he rejoin the club next season. The issue will be whether or not Leipzig are willing to pay Roma for his contract.
Currently, Schick is due back with Roma next month and will be returning to a Roma side that is still looking to solidify qualification for the UEFA Europa League. Going back would be step down considering where Leipzig has gone but negotiations may end up dictating the process.
"I'm here for Julian too," said Schick. "When I moved to Leipzig last summer, he told me he had actually wanted to bring me to Hoffenheim. I became more valuable in my games under him."
