Former Rangers midfielder Alex Rae has tipped midfielder Joe Aribo to walk into any team in the English Premier League and cope well “with the physical demands of the game.”
The 25-year-old Nigeria international has been a transfer subject in the ongoing window with several clubs from the English Premier League keen on his services.
On Saturday, reports emerged that promoted side Nottingham Forest had shown interest to sign him.
Rae said as quoted by Press Reader:
I think Joe could walk into the Premier League all day long. I think in the opening half of last season, Aribo was the outstanding player in Scotland by a distance.
When you look at the way he plays, at his European performances, and what he does for his country at the international level, that is the conclusion you come to.
He is very good technically, is experienced, and I have no doubt he would be able to cope with the physical demands of the game there. His form dipped a bit at the turn of the year after he went to the African Nations, but it picked up again towards the end of the season.
