JOE ARIBO has emerged as a transfer target for Crystal Palace.

Rangers’ Nigerian international, who is in the final year of his contract at Ibrox after joining from Charlton on a bargain £300,000 as he came out of contract in 2019, is wanted by the London club’s French boss Patrick Vieira.

Aribo is also being eyed by newly-promoted double-act Fulham and Nottingham Forest.

The 25-year-old midfielder is showing no signs of extending his stay in Scotland, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

Aribo, who scored the team’s goal in the Europa League Final spot-kick loss to Eintracht in Frankfurt in Seville last month, could get the bidding started at £5million.

Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent, who are also out of contract next summer, are in an identical position to their midfield team-mate as interested clubs, on the home front and in Europe, circle Ibrox with a new campaign coming up fast next month.
