Agent offers player to Celtic as Rangers talks continue

It looks like Joe Aribo’s agent isn’t happy with the terms that Rangers are offering his client, as he now looks to start a bidding war by offering the player to the Scottish champions, Celtic.

Newspaper reports had previously linked Celtic and Rangers with signing the player, but whether this was merely manufactured by the newspapers or by the agent, it has been clear that Aribo was not a player that Celtic were actively pursuing to sign.

But with his client set to decide his future this week, after leaving Charlton at the end of last season, his agent is now hoping he can tempt Celtic into signing his client with better terms than what he has been offered by the Ibrox side.

Aribo has certainly impressed during his time with Charlton, scoring 10 times in 39 appearances in all competitions last season, but Celtic have a plethora of midfielders - especially attacking midfielders and with Celtic looking to strengthen their defensive options first, it looks like his agent’s hopes of starting a bidding war will come to nothing.
