The Bianconeri have activated the release clause in the 21-year-old striker's contract, beating Serie A rivals Inter to his signature

Patrik Schick is set to complete his €25 million move to Juventus from Sampdoria after arriving in Turin to have his medical on Thursday.

The 21-year-old striker scored 11 goals in 32 Serie A games in his single season with Sampdoria, having joined from Sparta Prague for €4m last year.

Although the Czech Republic international was contracted to Sampdoria until 2020, he had long been the subject of interest from Juve and Inter, while Tottenham had been linked too.

He recently admitted a deal with Juventus was "possible" and it is indeed the Serie A champions who have won the race to sign him after activating a release clause in his contract.

Juve vice-chairman Pavel Nedved has previously likened Schick to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, though the striker dismissed the comparisons to his idol.
