West Ham have tabled a bid for Aaron Hickey at Bologna, according to a new report.
The teenager moved to the Italian club from Scottish side Hearts in September 2020 for a fee of £1.5m. Hickey can play at both left-back and right-back and is also capable of playing on the left of midfield.
And it now appears that he could move on for a significantly higher fee, with the Hammers and Arsenal both said to be interested in doing a deal.
Gazzetta dello Sport claims that the offer has gone in and is worth €25m, which equates to £21.25m.
The Hammers may well be in the market for a new left-back, especially as Arthur Masuaku is likely to leave the club if a bid is forthcoming this summer.
Hickey is already a full Scotland international, with two caps under his belt, at the age of 19, and there is also reported to be interest from Brentford in securing his signature.
