Report: Premier League trio want Rangers star Joe Aribo

Rangers face a fight to keep Joe Aribo at Ibrox, with the Daily Mail reporting that three Premier League sides want to sign the 25-year-old midfielder.

Aribo appears to have taken his game to another level this term. He has scored four goals in the Scottish Premiership, with his latest coming in Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s first league game in charge.

Only Fashion Sakala and Kemar Roofe have more goals in the top flight than the Nigeria international so far.

But perhaps the Gers may have to prepare themselves for offers for the midfielder with the January transfer window only a month away.


The Daily Mail reports that Crystal Palace, Brentford and Watford all want Aribo. It is noted that Rangers are in a somewhat vulnerable position with his contract up in 2023.

Van Bronckhorst is likely to be reluctant to lose him. The Daily Mail notes that the Dutchman wants to use Aribo in a more advanced role to get the best out of him in an attacking sense.

Rangers need to find out where Aribo sees his future amid Premier League interest

Rangers fans will be optimistic that Aribo will want to stay. None of his reported admirers find themselves in the top-half of the Premier League table.

However, obviously, all three would offer Aribo the chance to move closer to where he grew up and spent much of his career before his Ibrox switch. And turning down a move to the Premier League can clearly be too difficult for some.

With that in mind, Rangers need to establish where Aribo sees his future. If he is open to signing a new contract despite the interest, the Gers can somewhat relax.

But if he wants to go, the Light Blues need to figure out when is the right time to let him leave to ensure that they receive a reasonable fee while also not having their fortunes on the pitch derailed.
