Report – Arsenal makes a €25m bid for Serie A star

Arsenal has reportedly made a bid worth €25m for Bologna’s Aaron Hickey.

The Scottish left-back has attracted their attention in recent weeks, and they believe he is a better backup to Kieran Tierney when compared to the inconsistent Nuno Tavares.

The Gunners have a fine business relationship with Bologna, which helped them to sign Takehiro Tomiyasu from the Serie A club at the start of the season.

The Japanese star has been a solid buy, and he probably opens the door for Hickey to join him in London.

A report via Sport Witness claims Arsenal has made their offer, and it is much better than what West Ham has offered to land the left-back.

This means the Gunners are currently leading the chase for his signature, and they will probably win the race, eventually.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Tavares has been poor, and there is almost no room for a player that is not 100% ready to be fully focused in our matches.

We are trying to achieve something great with this squad, and it would take perfect performances from all our players before we can earn the right to challenge for titles.

Hickey could offer that to us, and Tavares will need to leave on loan to continue his development.

  1. Tavares doesn’t need to leave on loan,so far he likes to attack he can be converted to attacking positions

  2. Tavares hasn’t even been so bad. He was brilliant at the start of the season, had a few bad games, and I thought he was OK at the end of the season.
    Yes, he has a skillset that might work well further forwards, but i wouldn’t write him off completely as a left back yet.
    My understanding of hickey is that he’s very versatile, and can play either fullback position, and possibly central defense and central midfield as well. If so, he could be extremely valuable as a squad player, although I really don’t know how good he actually is as a player. Maybe we’ll see

  3. I am tired of links here and there. Can Edu please, get things done faster. You can’t imagine disappointment whenever our target is snapped by another team.
    So insulting

  4. Yes ! Tavares can be converted to attacking midfielder to assist Thomas and Elneny. Considering that we have more matches next season.

  5. It’s weird that people here can see Tavares as an attacking midfielder. Very weird, going forward doesn’t guarantee you can play that role. Lacazette, Martinelli, Nelson, willock have all been tried in that role under Arteta’s tenure. So I don’t see how people expect a player that runs aimlessly most of the times to have the intelligence to play as an attacking midfielder. He is surely fit for two options;
    1. Wing back, to relieve the defensive duties off him a bit
    2. Or even further as a winger. (Though his decision making isn’t satisfying for him to be deployed in the final third)

  6. Tavares is not a LB at best a WB….good going forward… athletic and physical…. should be converted to a LWF….let him be an option for Martinelli….having said that…he must improve on his crossing…. finishing and decision making…I see a top player in there somewhere
