Crystal Palace are now stepping up their interest in Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo, according to Football Insider.
The Lowdown: Aribo profiled
Aribo has been with the Scottish giants since 2019 and is primarily a left-footed central midfielder, attacking midfielder or right-winger.
Who has been Palace's best permanent signing?
The Latest: Source shares update
Football Insider shared a story regarding Aribo on Sunday evening after being informed by a recruitment source.
They claimed that Palace had scouts in attendance at Ibrox last Thursday to watch Aribo in Europa League action, labelling that as the Eagles stepping up their interest.
The Verdict: Impressed…
Rangers ran out 3-1 winners over Braga to book their spot in the Europa League semi-finals, and Palace scouts would have left impressed by Aribo’s display.
Turning out in an attacking midfield role, Aribo was Rangers’ second-best performer, as per SofaScore. He provided two assists, made six key passes, won 15 duels and completed three successful dribbles.
Conor Gallagher looks set to return to Chelsea in the summer following his productive Selhurst Park loan, so Aribo could now be viewed as the ideal replacement heading into Patrick Vieira’s second season in charge.
