Celtic’s Turnbull deal raises stakes for Rangers’ Aribo hopes

Celtic are closing in on a move for attacking midfielder David Turnbull.

Turnbull struck 15 goals for Motherwell last season and has been at the centre of a protracted transfer chase.

The Daily Record report Turnbull has now settled his mind on Celtic.

He will be a major asset for them, but title rivals Rangers are eyeing a big capture of their own.

Rangers are said to be near to a move for Charlton attacker Joe Aribo.

The Scottish Sun report Rangers have held a second round of talks for Aribo, but Charlton are attempting to convince the out of contract talent to stay.

Like Turnbull, Aribo is a young, promising attacking midfielder with an eye for goal.

He also reached double figures last season and at just 22 is an exciting prospect.

Rangers don’t quite have the deal over the line just yet, and Celtic’s imminent capture of Turnbull makes it absolutely essential that they do.

If the deal fell through and Aribo stays at Charlton, while Celtic have just succeeded adding a top star, would risk Rangers getting left further behind.
