Aribo is closing in on the final eighteen months of his contract at the Gers and, off the back of yesterday’s performance, manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst will surely be calling for the club to tie him down to a new deal.
Whether that is possible or not, it remains to be seen. The 25-year-old is reportedly attracting a lot of interest from Premier League teams ahead of the January transfer window and if his contract situation is left unresolved, the uncertainty around the player’s future will inevitably increase.
