Aberdeen and Hibs starlets watched by Serie A sides ahead of summer transfer window

The Scottish market is proving popular for Italian clubs following Aaron Hickey’s success with Bologna.

Lewis Ferguson, Calvin Ramsay and Josh Doig are all attracting interest from Serie A sides.

Ramsay was the subject of significant interest from Bologna in January with the Dons rejecting a loan with option to buy bid late in the window.

The right-back scored an own goal but impressed on the front foot.

He wasn't the only player watched by Sassuolo. The same report notes the Serie A outfit were looking at Hibs' teenage full-back Josh Doig.

The 19-year-old has been a key player for Hibs across the past two seasons and has attracted interest from down south.

Sassuolo weren't the only Italian side represented at Pittodrie on Saturday.

A delegation was there from Cagliari after they were invited by Lewis Ferguson's agent Bill McMurdo, as revealed by the Daily Mail.

The Sardinians looked at the midfielder as a possible option in January and would have made a significant move to land him had they sold Nahitan Nandez.

"I organised the trip and Aberdeen looked after them very well,” McMurdo told the Daily Mail. “I then had a four-hour meeting with the two men in Edinburgh on Saturday night and they are very keen.

"They were very impressed with Lewis' performance against Hibs.

"They met him for a few minutes to say hello and they were very impressed with him as a person, as well."
