Crystal Palace learn Joe Aribo price tag

Crystal Palace have learned the price tag of Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo after being strongly linked with a move for the Nigeria international in recent weeks.

What’s the story?

The Eagles were reportedly monitoring the situation of the 25-year-old amid speculation he was keen to depart Ibrox over the coming months, with new manager Patrick Vieira keen to add further reinforcements to his first-team squad.

And now, according to Football Insider, the Glasgow giants will demand £10m-plus for Aribo over the winter window as they attempt to keep hold of one of their star performers.

The report states that: “Rangers will demand a £10million-plus transfer fee for Joe Aribo in the January window, Football Insider understands. The versatile midfielder, 25, is on the radar of clubs south of the border going into next year and amid growing doubts over his long-term Ibrox future.

“A Rangers source has told Football Insider that the club have no intention of letting Aribo go easily, and it would take an eight-figure fee to get a deal done.”

Do Palace need Aribo?

Crystal Palace fans will be buzzing

Palace supporters will surely be buzzing at the prospect of signing a highly-rated player such as Aribo given his previous exploits north of the border, especially at a relatively cheap price.

The former Charlton Athletic ace was a pivotal part of the side that ended Rangers’ 10-year wait for a Scottish Premiership title last term, cementing his place in the Gers’ history as a result.

However, after scoring 19 goals and laying on a further 17 assists in 107 appearances for Steven Gerrard’s charges, it appears as though the 6-foot maestro is ready for a new challenge.

The 25-year-old’s current contract is set to expire in the summer of 2023, meaning the upcoming window may be the last chance for Rangers to secure a price that’s truly reflective of Aribo’s value.

And he could be the ideal signing for Palace as they look to continue their development under former Nice boss Vieira.

The likes of Conor Gallagher and Will Hughes were brought in by the French tactician over the summer as the overhaul of the capital club’s engine room began, and the former has already made a big impression in south London.

However, Gallagher is only on a season-long loan from Premier League rivals Chelsea, so it seems as though Vieira is already putting plans in place for the 21-year-old’s inevitable exit.

During his time north of the border, Aribo has become renowned for his dribbling skills and ability to pick out a pass, as well as being comfortable sticking a foot in and dispossessing opponents, all traits in which Gallagher excels.
