The Crystal Palace gaffer is interested in signing Joe Aribo as a replacement for Conor Gallagher.

Gallagher, who joined the Eagles on loan from Chelsea, has been outstanding this season. In 19 Premier League appearances, the England international has seven goals and three assists.

The 22-year-old on the other hand, is anticipated to return to Chelsea when his loan ends in the summer, leaving Palace without a suitable successor.

The Eagles have already found a replacement in Aribo, according to the Sun. 

The 25-year-old (Aribo) has been outstanding for Rangers this season, and he is a contender for Scottish Premiership Player of the Year.

Aribo’s performances have been important to Rangers quest to retain their league title. In 22 league games for the Gers this season, the Super Eagles player has six goals and four assists.

Palace are likely to face competition from Leicester City and Aston Villa, both of whom are managed by Steven Gerrard, Aribo’s former Rangers boss.

The Nigerian international has a year and a half left on his Rangers deal after joining on a free transfer from Charlton.
