Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has confirmed that Nigerian midfielder Joseph Oluwaseyi Temitope Ayodele-Aribo is having a medical at Scottish club Rangers today.
The 22-year-old Charlton midfielder has been strongly linked with a move to the Scottish Premiership side for several weeks now, and it looks like Gerrard is about to get his man.
The Gers first-team squad flew out to Portugal for a warm-weather pre-season training camp over the weekend without Aribo but Gerrard today confirmed to members of the media that the signing target was closing in on finalising his transfer to the Glasgow giants.
Due to cross border regulations, Rangers would only be required to pay a nominal development fee to Charlton, with the Express reporting the newly-promoted side are set to receive just £250,000 for one of their most promising players
Aribo looks set to become Rangers’ seventh signing of the summer.
