Schick: Juve deal is possible

Schick was compared to the Swedish great by Juventus vice-chairman Pavel Nedved, with the Serie A champions interested in signing the Czech Republic international.

But while the 21-year-old said he watched Ibrahimovic closely, he dismissed the comparisons.

"Ibrahimovic is my role model since childhood, but another like him doesn't exist," Schick told Czech site iSport.

"I think I can still improve.

"At Sampdoria, my experience was beautiful. I'm glad we were able to achieve our goals."

Schick scored 11 Serie A goals in his first season in Italy, leading to interest from numerous clubs.

Juve, where Ibrahimovic starred for two campaigns from 2004-06, appears his most likely destination.
