Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United interested in Brentford defender Aaron Hickey Transfers

Trent Alexander-Arnold is the reigning Liverpool right back. The underwhelming ability of the English defender has been an issue in recent years, and Neco Williams has challenged in the past but failed to threaten the position.

In last summer’s transfer window, the club acquired promising former Aberdeen defender Calvin Ramsey, but a lengthy injury sidelined him and he made few first-team appearances.

James Milner was the backup last season, and 20-year-old defender Conor Bradley, who had a very successful season on loan, was supposed to be the backup this season, but has not been able to fulfill that role due to injury.

At the moment, Joe Gomez, who originally played at right back, is the reserve, and Stefan Bajcetic started in the same position in the Europa League.

Liverpool, who are looking for a right back who can also compete with the England defender for the main job, are interested in Brentford defender Aaron Hickey, according to The Mirror.

Arsenal, Manchester United, and Bayern Munich are also keen on the 21-year-old defender, who has also made 11 appearances for Scotland, and there could be a fierce battle for the young defender, who is under contract until 2026.

According to the newspaper, Brentford is expected to demand £50 million. The player has made 32 appearances in the Premier League and 47 in the Serie A. If you include his age (21 years old), the price may not be that unreasonable.

He has abundant stamina and is willing to repeat up and down movements and play hard. He can use his right foot as well as his left foot skillfully. His potential is unlimited, and it is not a dream to reach the level of Liverpool defender Andy Robertson, who has developed into one of the best left backs in the world with the Scottish national team.

It remains to be seen whether the aforementioned clubs will be interested in acquiring him, as it is only speculation at this point. However, we cannot rule out the possibility that he is ready to step up and be seen playing for another club next season.
