Hickey played for the youth teams at Hearts and then Celtic, before moving back to the Edinburgh side in 2018.

The Scot broke the record for the youngest player to ever start in a Scottish Cup final, when he started the 2019 final aged 16.

The 20-year-old spent the 2019-20 season in the Hearts first team before moving to Bologna that summer for £1.5m.

Hickey has impressed since moving to Italy, and started 34 games last season and even scoring five times from his wing-back position.

  • Arsenal – 4/6
  • Hearts – 6/1


Arsenal have been strongly rumoured with wanting to sign the left-back, who would provide competition for Hickey’s Scottish compatriot Kieran Tierney, who struggled with injuries last season.

Nuno Tavares played second fiddle to Tierney for much of last season, and frustrated Arteta on more than one occasion, leading to the Spaniard being on the hunt for a new left-back.

There’s also a rumour that Hearts are prepared to bring him back to Edinburgh and offer the Scot a third stint with the club.

Betfair are pricing the move at 6/1.
