Celtic have reignited their interest in Aaron Hickey, according to The Scottish Sun.

It has been reported that Celtic are interested in signing Hickey from Bologna in the summer transfer window.

The former Heart of Midlothian left-back will cost over £4 million, but Celtic are reportedly willing to pay it, according to the report.

This is not the first time that Celtic have been linked with the 18-year-old Scottish left-back.

The Scottish Sun reported in September 2020 that the Hoops wanted the youngster last summer, with the teenager himself saying that despite being a Celtic fan, he turned down the chance to move to the Glasgow giants.

Described by former Hearts manager Daniel Stendel as “an extraordinary talent” who is “like Philipp Lahm” in The Scottish Sun in August 2020, Hickey is a very promising young left-back who can be a star for Celtic for years to come.

The young left-back has made 10 starts and one substitute appearance in Serie A for Bologna this season.

Celtic failed to win the Scottish Premiership title for the 10th season in a row this campaign and need to rebuild their squad in the summer to reclaim the championship from bitter Old Firm rivals Rangers.
