Arsenal reportedly say Aaron Hickey deal not true

Arsenal are claimed to have denied reports claiming that an agreement which would see Aaron Hickey join the club from Bologna this summer.

The Gunners are believed to be active in the transfer window already, with reports claiming that a deal has been struck which will see Brazilian youngster Marquinhos join, while deals to sign a defender and a goalkeeper from the MLS have already been struck also.

Reports in recent days said that a deal had been struck with Bologna however, a left-back who is comfortable playing down the right-hand side also, but the Express is claiming that the club has distanced itself from said rumours.

I hope that this doesn’t mean that we aren’t interested in the young Scottish defender, as I think he could well be a great player in the coming years. It could well be that we are not wanting to disrupt Nuno Tavares as he tries his best to fill in for the injured Kieran Tierney at left-back, as the young Portuguese could do with the confidence boost after a tough debut season in north London.

Nuno has come in for criticism for some of his performances, although he has also come in for praise after starting the season well, but he does appear to be a little raw, and a loan move away from the club next season may not be the worst idea.

Is the LB role one which we should have high on our list of roles which need strengthening this summer?

  1. News media are filing reports claiming Arsenal are claimed to have denied reports claiming that an agreement which would see Aaron Hickey join the club from Bologna this summer…. It is claimed

  2. I wonder why we aren’t after Sergio Gomez of Anderlecht. Amazing debut season for this LB, 7 goals and 15 assists! Would fit in an attacking sense. He’s okay at defending too but seeing as scoring is our Achilles heel, he would do really well.

  3. Why do people think that a loan move is always the solution for an “underperforming” player?surely training with Arsenal team everyday is bound to improve him no? and get familiar with our tactics… let’s not forget that he is young and new to the league and started the season pretty well.had we had a decent run in domestic cups competitions,he would have more games and probably against easier opponents to adapt and grow in confidence.

    1. You gain more experience from playing games as opposed to trainings. Your team mates not expand energy at you and don’t stress you.

  4. Well if rumours are true,it looks like the transfer strategy is going to be the same this summer.i wish we would go for older ,more experienced players,leaders..that this team is crying out for.
