Reports in Italy have claimed Celtic have indeed put a £3.5m on the table for their former youth player Aaron Hickey.
Every transfer window lately has seen the club linked with a move for the defender.
Bologna managed to persuade Hearts to part with the defender last summer but Celtic haven’t given up the ghost.
SunSport report the player is still high on Celtic’s list of recruits and they cite reports in Italy claiming a bid has been made.
Hickey is a Celtic fan, but that’s not a driving force for the player who has left the club twice because of the lack of opportunity. He is career driven and should be applauded for that.
There will be vindication from the player’s side of things that Celtic are keen on paying a decent fee for him one. Had he stayed in our setup theres every chance he would have been lost to the system.
Celtic have been criticised for their lack of planning when it comes to young players. We’re a club who should be putting so much emphasis on building up our own talent but rarely do.
Hickey would be a good signing for Celtic and provide energy down the left hand side. Will Bologna part with their player though?
