Aston Villa are thought to be leading Celtic in the race to sign Bologna left-back Aaron Hickey in January.
And, as to be expected, a number of Villa fans have been reacting to the news on social media.
How many more signings should Gerrard make after signing Coutinho?
Villa currently have two options at left-back in Matt Targett and Ashley Young, but it seems as if they are thinking long-term when looking at a move for Hickey, who is thriving in a top European league at just 19 years of age.
Villa fans react
This is what these Villa fans had to say in reply to Total Villa’s Twitter post regarding Hickey on Wednesday afternoon, with many keen for Villa to bring the youngster to the Midlands.
“Get him in please”
“Of the players being linked to Villa lately, Hickey is one of the few exciting ones”
“The obvious answer for a reserve LB. Cash and Keslar on the right, Targett and Hickey on the left. Will be interesting to see if SG wants a straight swap out for Targett with more attacking prowess.”
“@AVFCOfficial sign him.”
“We would be more likely to get him in the summer!”
