According to sporx.com, Galatasaray are interested in signing Glasgow Rangers’ Joe Aribo this summer.
The Lowdown: Gers stars to attract interest
Given the Gers won the Premiership without losing a single match this campaign (BBC), there are likely to be a number of their players attracting interest from across Europe.
The Latest: Galatasaray want Aribo
Now, it has emerged that Turkish outfit Galatasaray are eyeing Aribo.
He is valued at €3.5m (£3.15m) by Transfermarkt, but this report says the Ibrox outfit are likely to want considerably more than that fee.
The Verdict: Plenty more to give
The recently-ended season was a mixed one for Aribo. He played 42 matches in all competitions, scoring eight goals and providing seven assists, and even displayed his versatility by playing at left-back towards the end of the term (Transfermarkt). However, he has struggled with injuries at times, and has also come in for criticism from supporters.
Should Rangers sell Aribo?
According to The Athletic, Aribo’s real value is £11m – that would be a considerable sum for the 55-time Scottish champions. Of course, he still has plenty to give the Gers, but if they can get a good price for him, they may decide to move him on and look for an upgrade. Galatasaray, who have won the Turkish league 22-times, may feel he is the right man for them.
