Patrik Schick’s move from Sampdoria to Juventus has been thrown in doubt, reports Gazzetta dello Sport.
The development comes after the Serie A champions took issue over what they have found in his medical report.
The striker agreed personal terms last month and had his medical during a break from the European Under-21 Championship three weeks ago.
However, the weeks have gone by and there is still no formal announcement of a transfer.
Italian football expert Gianluca Di Marzio claims this evening that there are problems between the two clubs holding up the move.
It’s not clear what the issues are or how they can be resolved, but there could be big developments over the next few days.
La Gazzetta dello Sport imply there was an issue flagged up in the medical, but Samp consider the contracts valid anyway.
The forward netted 13 goals in 35 appearances for Marco Giampaolo’s team last term , and his performances led to a number of European clubs – including Tottenham Hotspur and Internazionale – to send scouts to watch him in person.
