And the Hammers have a big chance to make a statement by beating Spurs to the 22-capped Czech Republic international’s signature.
David Moyes will be desperate to bring another established forward to the London Stadium this summer in order to provide more competition and support for the misfiring Sebastien Haller.
And the same can be said of Jose Mourinho at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with a reliable deputy for Harry Kane badly needed in north London.
And it seems as though £24 million rated Schick (Gazzetta dello Sport) is on the radar of both West Ham and Tottenham.
The Roma attacker has scored only eight goals in 58 games for Roma (Transfermarkt).
Schick spent last season on loan in the Bundesliga with RB Leipzig and racked up 10 goals in 22 games (Transfermarkt). And he showed glimpses of what he is really capable of.
The Czech ace has real talent, and at the age of 24, he will surely continue to get better.
If given a regular run of games, the 6ft 1in striker might just flourish in the Premier League. He won an average of 2.7 aerial duals per game in the Bundesliga this season (Who Scored) – a stat that highlights his strength in the air.
Schick seems to be the ideal player to bring in to compete with Haller at West Ham next season. And he would undoubtedly do a good job supporting Harry Kane at Tottenham.
The Hammers must do all they can to beat Spurs to his signature, however. It really would be a big statement from the east London outfit.
