Rangers: talkSPORT man drops Joe Aribo release clause claim

Rangers: talkSPORT man drops Joe Aribo release clause claim -Rangers News

TalkSPORT pundit Gabby Agbonlahor is adamant that a plethora of clubs will trigger the reported £10m release clause included in the contract of Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo.

The Lowdown: Aribo’s contract

With the 25-year-old having entered the final 12 months of his Ibrox contract, the Light Blues run the risk of losing Aribo on a free transfer next summer.

However, The 4th Official recently reported that the Nigeria international has a £10m release clause in his current deal.

And with a whole host of Premier League clubs interested in securing the midfielder’s services, the Gers may no longer be left with the choice of cashing in now or losing him next year – that decision could soon be out of their hands.

The Latest: Agbonlahor’s claim

Agbonlahor, who works as a pundit for talkSPORT, believes that numerous clubs will be willing to trigger Aribo’s release clause this summer.

Speaking with Football Insider, he claimed: “There will be clubs interested in Joe Aribo.

“If there is a £10million release clause I’m sure that will be met because of what he showed in the final with his goal.

“Every time I watched him over the last couple of season he’s been a player that’s stood out for me.

“He’s very comfortable on the ball, always shows that work rate and can play a number of positions. He’s a top player who Rangers will not want to lose, definitely.”

The Verdict: Big loss

When analysing the Nigerian’s underlying stats, his importance to Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side really shines to the forefront, demonstrated by his wide range of attributes.

When compared with positional peers across Europe over the past year, the 25-year-old ranks in the 99th percentile for aerials won, in the 97th percentile for expected assists, and in the 95th percentile for interceptions and clearances (via FB Ref).

Will Joe Aribo be a Rangers player next season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, with Aribo’s Gers contract running low, the Glasgow outfit may simply have to take what they can get and reinvest efficiently.

The thought of losing the talented midfield maestro is a troublesome one, but at least they will make a huge profit on his Bosman move from Charlton.
