Brentford are looking to beat Arsenal, Newcastle and Napoli in race to sign 19-year-old Scottish fullback Aaron Hickey from Bologna

  • Hickey has played 34 league games for Bologna this season, scoring five goals
  • He has played in both fullback positions and at wing back for the Italian side
  • The 19-year-old won Bologna’s Golden Boy award in his season with the club

Brentford are pushing to win the race to sign versatile Scottish defender Aaron Hickey.

The Bees are hoping to firm up their long-standing interest in Bologna’s Hickey, who has been the subject of growing interest ahead of the summer window.

Thomas Frank’s side have recovered from a mid-season wobble and now sit 11th in the Premier League table, 12 points clear of relegation with one game remaining.

Arsenal, Newcastle and Italian side Napoli have also been linked with former Celtic youngster Hickey, who has played on both the left and right as a defender and also a wingback.

He has been attracting attention since moving to Serie A side Bologna from Hearts, over Bayern Munich, for £1.5m in 2020, being a near ever-present this season.

The 19-year-old won Bologna’s Golden Boy award in his first season with the club and has continued to improve this season, picking up five goals from 34 league appearances. 

Bologna sit 13th in Serie A this year, one place lower than in Hickey’s first season with the club.

Hickey’s form has also seen him earn international recognition, winning his first two caps against Poland and Austria in March.
