Rangers: Joe Aribo wanted by ex-Gers manager

Rangers: Joe Aribo wanted by ex-Gers manager -Rangers News

A former Glasgow Rangers manager reportedly now wants to sign Joe Aribo in the summer.

The Lowdown: Gerrard favourite

Before the appointment of Giovanni van Bronckhorst, the Nigeria international was a firm favourite under Steven Gerrard, as he barely missed a game when he was available, scoring 20 goals and supplying a further 18 assists over the last three seasons (Transfermarkt).

The 41-year-old even went as far as to call him a ‘stunning‘ player back in 2020, a testament to just how much he rates the Nigerian.

The Latest: Aribo wanted

As per The Scottish Sun, Gerrard now wants to sign Aribo for Aston Villa this summer, as they join a transfer race which also includes fellow Premier League clubs Crystal Palace and Brentford.

Should Rangers start Aribo?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Nigeria international has so far resisted offers of a new deal at Ibrox, with his current contract set to expire in 2023.

Rangers hope to drive up his price, but could agree to sell him for less than £10m.

The Verdict: Too cheap

Given that he is 25 years of age and has not yet hit his peak, selling Aribo for less than £10m would be far too low a price for the Gers to let him go.

Can you guess these ex-Rangers players' nationalities? Let's get started... Florian Kamberi's country of birth is?

Considering that they sold Nathan Patterson to another Premier League side in Everton for £16m in January, the Light Blues need to be looking at the same kind of figure if they are to let Aribo depart for England as well.

Described as ‘unreal‘ by Villa defender Ezri Konsa, the midfielder could certainly make an impression in the Premier League, so the Gers should not let him go cheaply.
