Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieria is interested in signing Super Eagles midfielder Joe Aribo as a replacement for Conor Gallagher.

Gallagher has been brilliant for the Eagles this season after he arrived on loan from Chelsea. The England international has scored seven goals and recorded three assists in 19 Premier League matches.

Aribo’s performances have been vital to Rangers quest to retain their league title. The Super Eagles star has six goals and four assists in 22 league games for the Gers this season.

Palace are likely to face competition from Leicester City and Aston Villa, who are managed by Aribo’s former manager at Rangers Steven Gerrard.

The Nigerian international, who joined Rangers on a free transfer from Charlton, still has one and a half-year left on his contract at the Ibrox.
