Schick happy with Roma life
Roma striker Patrick Schick says he is happy at the Italian outfit and says rumours of a move to Arsenal are just that.
It had been claimed the Gunners were considering offering Wales international Aaron Ramsey, who is set to leave on a free transfer at the end of the season, in a part-exchange deal with Schick in January.
Unai Emery is said to be interested in bringing in more attacking reinforcements to the Emirates and the Roma striker, who has scored one goal from three Serie A starts this term, is high on his wish list.
However, the Spanish tactician may have to turn his attention elsewhere after Czech international Schick insisted he is happy in Italy and is not seeking a move away in the upcoming window.
"The rumours of the market are just speculation," he is quoted as saying by Gazzetta dello Sport. "I have everything very clear in mind, I want to stay in Rome, respect the contract and get on top."
