PL side bids £10M for Joe Aribo – reports

An unnamed PL side is said to have made a serious bid for Joe Aribo, with information claiming the number is at £10M.

The Nigeria international, a shining star of last season, especially in the second half, has been improving as a Rangers player and is as excited as anyone to be involved in the Champions League this season, and the PL outfit are trying to test Rangers’ resolve with an eight-figure sum.

The midfielder, who is hitting the prime of his career, has only just properly got going at Ibrox and there’s little to no chance Rangers would entertain anything under £20M for his services.

The recent example of course is the ‘crazy’ fee Brentford are said to have paid for Celtic’s Ajer with the Norwegian fetching a base cost of around £15M rising to £20M with addons.

This has shown just what Rangers should expect for a lucrative asset like Aribo and a £10M bid doesn’t come close.

But of course he’s crucial to Rangers and Steven Gerrard is determined to keep the former Charlton man.

His absence from the Arsenal friendly is not thought to be related to this transfer story.

More as it develops.

  1. £10m would represent a great return on our original investment but I think Joe Aribo could reach greater heights than most of our valuable assets. I can really see him strutting his stuff in Serie A for one of the big boys. The EPL may be a bit too frenetic for him.

  2. I think 10 is a good price for him, great with thee ball at his feet but his goal/ assit numbers aren’t outrageous. Think if he can perform in the UCL the way we know he can then we can get more. Assets are only worth what the buyer is willing to pay for them.

    • It’s a good point. Any of our valuable assets can increase their value significantly by performing in the Champions League. We hoped that would’ve happened in the Euros and Copa America but of course only Kamara had any real playing time.
