Kevin Campbell is adamant Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo’s head would be turned by the prospect of a move to Nottingham Forest this summer.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Forest and Arsenal striker also suggested finances could play a major part in the 25-year-old’s future.

Aribo has entered the final 12 months of his contract at Ibrox.

According to Chris Jack, writing in The National (23 June), Nottingham Forest and Fulham are both considering moves for the attacking midfielder this summer.

Both clubs are looking to bolster their attacking options after promotion last season.

“He is one of the main men there.

“We are talking Premier League football here though. Financially, Rangers cannot compete. That is unfortunately the case. That is the way life is.

“Aribo has gone up there and won his trophies. He’s had that success.

“Nottingham Forest are a massive draw. It is a beautiful city.

“They have a young, progressive manager who has got the club back in the Premier League for the first time in 23 years. Steve Cooper could develop him and that might entice him. It is an exciting project at Forest.

“With the money we are talking about, I think it might materialise. I think it would turn his head a little.”

In other news, Steve Cooper hailed by Campbell as Nottingham Forest close in on ‘biggest signing of the summer’.
