Report – Brentford plots to beat Arsenal to Serie A youngster

Brentford is looking to beat Arsenal to the signature of Aaron Hickey this summer.

The Bologna full-back has been on Arsenal’s radar since the end of the season as they look for a better alternative to Kieran Tierney.

Nuno Tavares may have missed his chance to get that spot, but Arsenal must act fast if they intend to sign Hickey.

This is because The Daily Mail reports that Brentford has also become interested in a move for him.

The report claims the Bees have made an official approach and they are looking to add him to their squad for around £18million.

This might be enough to take him away from Serie A because he joined Bologna for around £1.5 million.

Just Arsenal Opinion

We need to act on our transfer targets fast if we are serious about adding them to our squad.

This is because there are other clubs waiting in the wings to sign these players too.

The smartest teams try to get their businesses done fast and Arsenal needs to adopt that approach.

Because the next campaign starts sooner than usual, we would benefit from completing most of our signings before preseason starts.

  1. Not sure that buying Hickey would be an improvement on Tierney – unless it’s about fitness levels.
    Trouble is, we are dilly dallying again, just as we have done for years…. I wonder who will get the blame this time?

    1. Tavares is physically imposing, fast, exciting and talented.

      Yes, he is a work in progress.

      Keep the faith!

      1. that’s how it should be, we have a lot of player’s e gave away then turn up to be good & expensive world class players

  2. AMN seems to be done at Arsenal. He wants, and needs, first team football as now in his mid 20s

    He hardly got any minutes under Arteta before going on loan – Nottingham Forest would be a good fit for him.

  3. This link never made sense to me from the start. Tierney is one of the best in the league when fit and Tavares, whilst flawed, is only one season into his Arsenal career.
    Now this story comes out, it makes sense.. we weren’t interested (no doubt we scouted him, we scout everyone) but we were linked to keep the price up and now journalists can lie and say Brentford beat us, when we were never in the race.
