Schick signed for Sampdoria in June 2016 for a reported fee of €4 million. In his first season in Italy, he appeared in 32 league matches and scored 11 goals for Sampdoria. He refused to extend his contract in May 2017, expecting a transfer to another club. In June 2017, Juventus triggered the release clause of a reported €30 million on Schick's contract. However, Schick failed two separate medicals and Juventus backed out of the deal on 18 July.
On 29 August 2017 Schick joined Roma on a temporary deal for a loan fee of €5 million. The club had a conditional obligation to buy the player once certain sporting objectives had been achieved, for an initial fee of €9m, plus bonuses of €8m. Moreover, if Schick was sold by Roma before 1 February 2020, Sampdoria would receive €20m or a 50% transfer fee, depending on which figure were greater. Nevertheless, Sampdoria will receive €20m in February 2020 if Schick will not be sold by the time the January transfer window would closed. Including all possible bonuses, the €42 million price tag would surpass the previous club record transfer fee of €36m (Gabriel Batistuta).
Style of play
Regarded as a promising young player in the media, Schick is a tall and physically strong yet elegant left-footed forward, with an eye for goal. Although he usually plays in a central role as a main striker, he is also capable of playing as a second striker, or as a right winger. A quick, powerful, hard-working, and agile player, he is known for his ability to utilise his physique to hold up the ball with his back to goal, but also possess excellent technique and dribbling skills, as well as good link-up play, which enables him to play the ball first time, participate in the build-up of attacking plays, and provide assists for teammates. He is also good in the air, and is capable of scoring goals with his head.
