‘Here we go’: Fabrizio Romano issues some bad news to Arsenal fans

Aaron Hickey joining Arsenal is now out of  question.

According to Fabrizio Romano, who tweeted last afternoon that the Scottish left-back is likely to depart Bologna for Premier League club Brentford.

For much of the summer, Arsenal has been linked with a deal for Hickey.

The Scotsman reported two weeks ago that the Gunners were closing in on a deal for the 20-year-old defender.

That appears to be the case no longer, since Romano tweeted that he is on his way to the other side of London.

This is definitely bad news for Arsenal, who will not be able to acquire one of their perceived targets.

And, to be honest, it’s probably up to Kieran Tierney.

Not explicitly, of course, but Hickey probably wants to play every week, and the truth is that with Tierney ahead of him in the pecking order, that is unlikely.

Tierney is Arsenal’s first-choice option in that position, and while the former Celtic teenager is prone to injury, Hickey can’t be expected to rely on his absence to receive minutes on the pitch.

Mikel Arteta also has Nuno Tavares as a left-back alternative, and while Hickey is likely to be ahead of him, it’s not assured because the Portuguese teenager has the principles of a dangerous attacking player, and if he can smooth out his defensive creases, he’s a genuine threat to Tierney.

Overall, you have to believe that Hickey is making the correct decision.
