Chelsea warned off making a bid for Serie A sensation
According to Sampdoria, Chelsea target Patrik Schick is not for sale. Schick, who has scored 8 times in 24 games for Sampdoria this season, has been watched by the Blues all season long.
Antonio Conte is looking for attacking reinforcements as he braces himself for a fight to keep Diego Costa at the Bridge next season.
According to reports in the media, the Czech Republic striker, who has also been linked with a move to Inter Milan, has attracted the attention of Chelsea this season despite not scoring too many goals. Conte believes the player has the capacity to improve and when surrounded by top players, he will raise his game.
The striker joined Sampdoria last summer and has a £25 million release clause written into his contract. Sampdoria president Ferrero, believes that amount is high enough to discourage any potential suitors of the striker.
However, Chelsea will not be discouraged, they have reportedly set aside £120 million for Conte to use for new signings this summer, and if he chooses to, he will sign the striker.
