During his landmark Serie A season with Bologna, rising Scotland star Aaron Hickey has attracted interest from Premier League giants Arsenal.
Since joining from Scottish Premiership club Heart of Midolthian in 2020, the 19-year-old has risen through the ranks and consistently impressed Mihajlovic, becoming a regular in his current squad.
So far this season, the promising full-back has scored five goals and provided one assist in 33 Serie A games for Bayern Rossoblu.
Despite Arsenal being tied to Bologna with a long-term deal until 2024, Arsenal have shortlisted Hickey as summer targets as they are keen to sign him at Emirates Stadium next season.
Corresponding The sun football, The Gunners are desperate to keep up with Bologna €20 million as a result of his sensational season in Italy’s top flight.
With Arsenal only having Kieran Tierney in their squad as a solid left-back, club officials believe the addition of Hickey would bolster their depth in defence.
