He scored ten goals and registered three assists in 39 League One appearances [Transfermarkt], eventually helping the Addicks earn promotion to the Championship via the playoffs.
However, he’s out of contract at the Valley this summer.
Multiple clubs have been linked with a cut-price swoop for the midfielder. Yet, it seems as though Rangers are about to win the race.
According to the Daily Mail, via the Scottish Sun, the 22-year-old will sign and join up with the Rangers squad before their pre-season trip to Portugal.
It’s also said that he will immediately become one of the club’s highest paid players. £20,000 a week is the quoted figure. That means he’ll be raking in just in excess of £1 million a year at Ibrox.
It would be a great piece of business if Rangers were able to secure the Englishman’s signature for just a cross-border development fee.
Celtic were also reportedly interested [Scottish Sun], so it would be an early blow from Gerrard towards Neil Lennon’s plans.
That being said, if and when Aribo is confirmed, the attention must switch to centre-back. After the departures of Joe Worrall and Gareth McAuley, the Gers lack defensive cover.
