Rangers: Crystal Palace ready to move for Joe Aribo

Rangers: Crystal Palace ready to move for Joe Aribo -Rangers News

Crystal Palace are reportedly interested in signing Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo, claims Alex Crook in his latest talkSPORT column.

The Lowdown: Aribo’s Rangers career

Having arrived from Charlton Athletic on a free transfer in 2019, the 25-year-old has become an integral part of Rangers’ midfield.

The Nigeria international has featured 56 times this season, netting nine goals and producing ten assists to help push the Glasgow side to a second-place finish both in the league and in Europe.

Aribo averaged a 7.03 WhoScored rating throughout Rangers’ emphatic Europa League campaign, where Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side sensationally reached the final before missing out on penalties to Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Latest: Palace want Aribo

According to journalist Alex Crook in his talkSPORT column, Crystal Palace have identified Aribo as a potential Conor Gallagher replacement.

Eagles boss Patrick Viera is said to be a big admirer of the 25-year-old, as he believes the midfielder’s versatility would be a huge asset to his Palace side.

Aribo fits Palace’s up-and-coming recruitment strategy, so the Premier League club are likely to make a move for the Rangers man in the summer.

The Verdict: Big loss for Rangers

Aribo’s Ibrox departure would come as a huge loss to van Bronckhorst, as the Dutchman has claimed that the midfielder plays a “very important role” in his Gers side.

Aston Villa ace and former Charlton teammate Ezri Konsa has been extremely complimentary of the Nigeria international, claiming that he reminds him of a “left-footed Yaya Toure” due to his “unique” play-style.

With a potential Ibrox exit on the cards, van Bronckhorst will be doing anything he can to keep the midfielder in Glasgow.
