Aston Villa have approached Bologna over a move for left-back Aaron Hickey.
That’s according to Sky Sports reporter Rob Dorsett, and his update has had a number of Villa supporters talking on social media.
How many more signings should Gerrard make after signing Coutinho?
Hickey was linked with a move to Villa Park back in October when Dean Smith was in charge, but it seems as if Steven Gerrard is also keen on a move after being impressed by the Scot during his time as Rangers boss.
Dorsett revealed on Wednesday evening that Villa have approached the Serie A side for Hickey’s services, with Johan Lange also exploring alternative left-back options.
Hickey is valued at £11.7m by Transfermarkt and is under contract with Bologna until 2024. He’s missed just one Serie A game all season and has mainly turned out as a left-midfielder in a back three system.
Villa fans react
“IM GONNA FAINT”
“very huge news. would be a delight to have him play LB for us”
“I’m excited by this more than the potential Coutinho signing”
“OH STOP THAT”
“Don Lange is on one today”
