Arsenal are set to hold talks with Bologna for Aaron Hickey.
Il Corriere di Bologna says Arsenal are set to open talks with Bologna as they eye up a summer swoop to sign Scottish defender Hickey.
The Gunners have been heavily linked with a move for the 19-year-old, with club scouts said to have been impressed by his dazzling displays in Serie A this season.
Hickey – capable of playing as a left-back or right-back – has chipped in with five goals and one assist in 34 league games this term.
His stunning form saw him earn his Scotland senior international debut in March.
Arsenal will hold talks with the Italian outfit imminently as a possible replacement for Nuno Tavares.
