Crystal Palace lining up £10m transfer for Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo to fill void left by Conor Gallagher next season

CRYSTAL PALACE have put Rangers star Joe Aribo on the top of their shopping list for next season.

Londoner Aribo could head home this summer as Eagles boss Patrick Vieira looks for a midfielder to replace loan star Conor Gallagher after his return to Chelsea.

Palace sporting director Dougie Freedman watched Nigeria star Aribo, 25, in the midweek Old Firm clash with Celtic.

Rangers would want about £10million for ex-Charlton man Aribo and Palace have the funds available.

The Scottish giants may have the Champions League to offer.

But the lure of London and a chance to play in the English top-flight could tempt Aribo.

Palace are also facing the loss of some players who are out of contract in the summer and many of them are midfielders.

Aribo – who has 18 months left on his deal – has been at Rangers since 2019 after a £300,000 move from Charlton.

Coincidentally the Addicks replaced him with Gallagher on loan from Stamford Bridge, giving the now-England star his first senior action.


Aribo played a starring role in last season’s Scottish Premiership title win.

He has so far helped himself to 23 goals in 125 games for the Glasgow outfit.

That form earned him international recognition with Nigeria, who have capped him 15 times.

Aribo started in three of their four matches at the Africa Cup of Nations before being dumped out in the last-16 by Tunisia.

He returned for the disappointing 3-0 Old Firm hammering at against Celtic at Parkhead.
