Aaron Hickey is one of the few Scottish players to make the switch to the Serie A and is now attracting interest in the Premier League. Hickey was signed by Bologna from Hearts for £1.5m and has gone on to score five goals in the Serie A. His performances have not gone unnoticed as he earned his first call up to the national team in March.
“I might want to challenge myself somewhere else and have a different experience, but who knows the future. I do see a lot of talks. It’s nice to know there’s interest from other clubs, it gives you some confidence. But you just keep your head down and focus on football,” Aaron Hickey said about interest in the Premier League. “It’s been really good here. As I said, who knows I might want to have a new challenge, but I probably wouldn’t mind coming here every day, to be honest. It’s nice to see other Italian teams interested. It’s nice to see that because it is the Serie A, it is the top league and there are top teams. It’s nice to see big teams around your name.”
“It’s really nice to see other Scottish players go somewhere and do really well at their clubs so it makes you want to go and do that as well,” he added. “I met a few of them from the Scotland camp and got in some good chats with some of them and it was dead nice and you get a feel of what they are doing. A few of them asked me, ‘How is it staying out in Bologna? How is the football?’ And a few of them said the league is really good, and they’d love to play in the league. I just said, ‘It’s class, get yourself over.”
