Brentford to rival Arsenal for signature of two exciting players

Brentford is looking to compete with Arsenal for some players in this transfer window.

The Bees have been impressive in their first season in the Premier League and they are looking to build on that in the next campaign.

They have some of the finest players in England on their team, but will improve the squad even further now that they have secured top-flight safety.

The Sun claims they are targeting a swoop for Aaron Hickey, who has been on Arsenal’s radar for much of the last few weeks.

The Gunners consider him the ideal backup to Kieran Tierney after Nuno Tavares struggled in that role.

But Brentford wants new full-backs, and they have him on their radar as well. They are also keen on signing Norwich’s Max Aarons

Arsenal has trailed Aarons since he first came to the Premier League with the Canaries, and they have maintained an interest in the Englishman.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Hickey and Aarons are very bright young full-backs who will serve us well now and in the future.

If we can sign both of them, we would have locked down two fine full-backs, and we will probably not need to sign players in those positions for almost a decade.

But their clubs will only sell them to the suitor that offers them the best value.

  1. Not particularly inspired by Hickey after the Ukraine game. Admittedly the whole Scotland team were poor, but I thought he was really bad (although, I accept, it’s unfair to judge off a single performance). Zinchenko, on the other hand, was excellent, just as he’s pretty much always been when I’ve seen him for City. He can cover left back and also defensive midfield plus either of the midfield “8” roles. With Tierney, Partey and Xhaka around he’d be pretty much an ever-present, even if he didn’t work his way into being first choice. Plus Arteta knows him from City. No brainer, if he’s available. Rather than buy Aarons who is, shall we say, “defensively limited”, we should put up with Cedric for another season whilst Brook Norton-Cuffy matures. He’s already better than Aarons, IMHO, and I think he is Arsenal’s future at right-back.

    1. Strongly agree with this. Although I thought Hickey was probably the best of an awful bunch last night. Put in some excellent crosses. At 19 years old, I see potential, although 20-25m is a lot for a punt.

    2. i see no reason why we shouldnt be going for Zinchenko over hickey. One is prem proven, and has filled in very well for City for very big games. The criminal Mendy was constantly injured and Zinchenko played the vast majority of those matches that had Pep’s side winning trophies.

  2. then it can be good when we go for proven players to make things much easier for us in the next EPL which i think is going to be difficult than last year, So we should not take things like last year a strong squad is needed on ground.
