Agent Dario Canovi has no doubts over the potential of Sampdoria striker Patrik Schick.

The Czech Republic youngster has been linked with Manchester United and Chelsea.

Canovi told TMW Radio: “A ds of an important club compared him to (Marco) Van Basten, it is a striking comparison, but I’m convinced in two to three years he will be in the top three strikers in the world.

“He has everything: class, tactical flexibility, physicality, a strong mind.

“He speaks 3-4 languages, he is one of those on which I can see doing anything. He will be a champion.”
