Former Celtic striker Frank McAvennie, has hinted that Nigeria international Joe Aribo could join his former manager at Premier League side Aston Villa.
Aribo has been nothing but a gem for Gerrard’s former team Rangers, since moving to the Ibrox club from Championship side Charlton at the end of 2018-19 season.
The former Anfield legend was appointed new Villa’s boss last week, following the dismissal of Dean Smith who has since moved to Premier League struggling side Norwich City.
McAvennie during an interview with the media, the former striker believes Gerrard will seek to bring some of his players to the Midlands with the Nigeria international top of the list at Villa.
“There are a few players who could make that jump from Scotland to England, I would be very surprised if Gerrard didn’t sign at least one player from Rangers.”
“I look at the squad and I see a few players who could do it. Joe Aribo stands out for me.”
“He’s young enough and has the talent to go down there and do well, ten million pounds for hm? That’s a good deal.”
“Aribo could add that spark to Villa’s midfield. They have a lot of quality players but they are struggling to create. He could definitely follow Gerrard and it would be a brilliant move for him.”
The Nigeria international will be in action for Eagles against Cape Verde today, as they seek to pick next year’s World Cup ticket slated for Qatar.
