Arsenal show interest in Charlton Athletic youngster

Joe Aribo's future with EFL League One club Charlton Athletic remains unknown with his contract set to expire at the end of the 2018/19 season. 

Aribo has gained quite the reputation as one of the most exciting midfielders in the English third-tier, however, he is unlikely to stay with The Addicks if the rumours are anything to go by.

The 22-year-old has been reportedly likened to former Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira by former Charlton manager Karl Robinson.

According to reports gathered by Mirror UK, Arsenal have entered the hunt and said to have been watching him several times this 2018/19 season. 
 
Aribo's agent Emeka Obasi has close ties to Arsenal as he is also the representative of Nigeria national-teamer Alex Iwobi as well as another Hale End Academy graduate Chuba Akpom.
 
It's envisaged that there will be competition for his signature, with the likes of Frankfurt and Benfica credited with an interest. 
 
This season, Aribo has scored six goals in 28 appearances in League One.
