Arsenal fans have reacted on Twitter after Sampdoria striker Patrik Schick scored a goal that has been likened to Dennis Bergkamp’s famous strike against Newcastle.

The 21-year-old scored Sampdoria’s only goal of the game against Crotone, as his side suffered a 2-1 loss at home to the Serie A minnows.

Sampdoria’s English Twitter account posted a video of the goal, writing “Dennis Bergkamp who?” as he flicked the ball over a defender before finishing to score his 12th goal of the season.

The Czech Republic star’s goal is similar to Arsenal legend Bergkamp’s strike against Newcastle back in March 2002, as he also pirouetted after directing his first touch past a defender.

This comes after the Daily Mail claimed Arsenal and Tottenham had scheduled talks with the young striker’s representatives in London last month.

Arsenal fans were mesmerised by Schick’s strike for Italian outfit Sampdoria, but some were quick to point out that Bergkamp’s goal was better.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Sampdoria’s number 14 is regarded as one of the hottest young forwards from Serie A at the moment, but has a contract at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris until the summer of 2020.
