Aaron Hickey, an 18 year old Scot who plays for Hearts in the SPFL, has been linked with Bayern Munich in recent weeks. Bayern’s interest is concrete enough, that the defender has already visited Bayern’s facilities in Munich. According to the BBC, the Bavarians are yet to submit an offer for Hickey, who is in the last year of his contract.

Hickey is said to be excited at the prospect of playing for Bayern. And, if he joins the club, he would likely start off in Bayern’s second team, in the German third division — whilst being able to train regularly with Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller and co. in Bayern’s first team.

Furthermore, Hickey is just another on a growing list of Celtic youngsters, to be on bayern’s youth radar. Center-back Liam Morrison has already joined the club, and winger Barry Hepburn is speculated to be joining the club soon. Will Hickey be next?

In addition to Bayern, Hickey recently visited Bologna of Serie A. Hopefully Brazzo will have convinced him to chose Bayern via his famous power point presentations.
