- At Bayern, 17-year-old Scotsman Aaron Hickey is said to be on the list.
- For Hickey there are many prominent interested parties from all over Europe
Munich - Last week Bayern's sports director Hasan Salihamidzic surprised with an offensive announcement. The aim is to strengthen the squad * for the coming time and to pilot “an international star” and a “ top talent from Europe” to Munich. Since then, the rumor mill has been bubbling and many fans of FC Bayern wonder who exactly is meant.
Bayern: is the Scottish mega-talent Aaron Hickey Salihamidzic's trump card?
According to information from the Scottish tabloid Dailyrecord , the record champions are said to have reached out for talent from the Scottish league. The 17-year-old full-back Aaron Hickey from the first division Heart of Midlothian FC is said to have been the focus of AC Milan earlier this year , now FC Bayern * is said to have "strong interest" in the teenager.

Hickey is undoubtedly already far for his age and has played in 34 competitive games for his club and scored a goal. At 16 years and 11 months , he is the youngest player ever to start in a Scottish cup final. The final, in which they lost 2-1 to Celtic Glasgow , was also the debut of the youngster, who is based on the left-back position. However, despite his young age , Aaron Hickey is variable and can also be used in the central midfield.

FC Bayern: It would not be Munich's first Scotland deal
Interest in Hickey is reminiscent of a Bayern transfer * last summer when Munich signed 16-year-old talent Liam Morrison from Scottish series champion Celtic Glasgow. Since Hickey's contract ends in the summer of next year and, according to the daily record, will probably not be extended for the "Hearts" either, the way to Munich would be clear.

But according to the Scottish newspaper, this could be more difficult than previously thought. The Premier League giant Manchester City has already shown interest in Hickey. Accordingly, there should already have been a meeting with the representatives of both clubs in December . Even Celtic knocked comfortable with Hickey's club, even though the talent for a year in the youth academy played the Scottish championship record.
FC Bayern: teenager Hickey would fit into the pattern at the record champions
Since the Bayern * increasingly rely on not too expensive deals in which players with development potential should be committed, the Hickey deal would probably fit into the plans of the club. However, it is questionable whether it would be enough for the Bundesliga * .
Munich is also interested in a talent from a Bundesliga * competitor - now there has been a turn in poker around the youngster. Another star probably wants to leave FCB, preferably in the direction of their home club.
