if Rangers win the title successfully. They will do whatever it takes to keep key players in the squad, with Ribo one among them.

Before the appointment of Giovanni van Bronckhorst, the Nigeria international was a firm favourite under Steven Gerrard, as he barely missed a game when he was available, scoring 20 goals and supplying a further 18 assists over the last three seasons

However, the Nigeria international has just one season left on his contract with Rangers. This has led to him gaining interest from clubs.

The UFABET reports that Stephen Gerard is monitoring Ribo’s situation closely to consider a potential reunion.

The Nigeria international has so far resisted offers of a new deal at Ibrox, with his current contract set to expire in 2023.

Rangers hope to drive up his price, but could agree to sell him for less than £10m.

Reports say Rangers are available to sell Aribo for around £10million, while Crystal Palace and Brentford are also interested in the player.

Aribo has made 55 appearances for Rangers in all competitions this season, scoring 8 goals and providing 10 assists.
