Brentford are closing in on a deal for Scottish talent Aaron Hickey who has made huge strides at Bologna, Fabrizio Romano reports.

The 20-year-old full-back who is capable of playing on wither flank is set to sign a five-year deal with Brentford who will pay around £14m plus add-ons to the Italian club.

Hickey who made his Scotland debut this year was reported to be a target for Arsenal and Napoli, among other clubs. Bayern Munich tried to sign him when he was still at Hearts two years ago.

The defender is set to fly to England for a medical early next week.
