South Coast club Southampton are said to be plotting a move for highly-rated Charlton Athletic midfielder Joe Aribo during this summer’s transfer window.
This is according to widespread reports emanating from the media in the United Kingdom.
It was revealed that the Saints want to boost their midfield options next season with Joe Aribo who has been earning rave reviews due to his performances for his English League One outfit this season.
Arsenal and Manchester City have been linked with a move for the 22-year-old midfielder this summer but the two Premier League giants could miss out on him to Southampton who are poised to make a big for him according to the publication from the Sunday Express.
The Gunners are in need of a new midfielder and Joe Aribo could be their man but they have to fend off the serious threat from the Saints.
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey will leave the club this summer to join Italian champions Juventus after agreeing on a free transfer move with the Italians.
He has agreed to a four-year deal reported to be worth around £400,000 on a weekly basis thus making him the most expensive football in Great Britain.
Aaron Ramsey has spent the last decade in North London.
