Arsenal considering another Bologna full-back

Less than a year after they signed Japanese international Takehiro Tomiyasu, Arsenal are considering raiding Bologna for another full-back.

Aaron Hickey, who, although only 19 years old, is already a Scottish international, has impressed for the Serie A side since his arrival from Hearts in the summer of 2020, and has already racked up 44 appearances for them, scoring five times.

The Gunners have sent scouts  to watch him several times, and now they may be ready to make an offer to sim, with his asking price believed to be £17 million.

Mikel Arteta wants to add a versatile left-sided defender to his backline before the start of new season. Fellow Scot Kiernan Tierney is the number one left back at the club, but his injury problems have seen the inconsistent Nuno Tavares playing in his position instead.

And, whilst he is an exciting prospect going forward, his defensive lapses mean that he is always liable to give a chance to the opposition.
