Joe Aribo is Premier League class and can only get “better and better”
Says Nigerian's former teammate Greg Stewart
Joe Aribo has been described as a Premier League class who is just scratching the surface of his immene talent.
The Nigerian returned from international duty with Nigeria to provide an assist for Amad Diallo to score in Rangers’ 3-3 draw at Ross County.
It was his fourth assist of the season in the league with the player also netting six times.
The 25-year-old’s form has prompted transfer links to Premier League clubs, something which doesn’t surprise former team-mate Greg Stewart
who believes the midfielder is only going to get “better and better”.
“He has so much versatility that you could ask him to play anywhere on the park and he’d just get on with it.
“His ability with the ball is frightening.
“If he’s in the box, no-one can touch him. He’ll either go past you or you’ll foul him. His feet are just that good.
“Is he Premier League class? I think so.”
Stewart, who is now playing in the Indian Premier League, reckons it will be “difficult” for the player not to be tempted by a return to England. But for a team to sign him, they will have to pay a substantial fee for Aribo who is contracted to Rangers until 2023..
“I can’t see them selling him for any less than £15million. Maybe £20m.
