3 Replacements For Aribo At Charlton That Bowyer Can Consider Including This Bolton Midfielder

Lee Bowyer is still unhappy about how Charlton Athletic lost their star midfielder Joe Aribo to Rangers. Charlton will receive only a small compensation as the midfielder came up from their academy. Nevertheless, the club needs to keep on looking in the transfer market to replace a dynamic player like Aribo.

The young Englishman was an all-rounder in midfield as he played in a box to box role as well as an attacking midfielder. Aribo scored ten goals last season which helped the Addicks win the playoffs to get promoted to the Championship. With the midfielder leaving almost on a free transfer, the club didn’t receive due compensation for a player of Aribo’s quality. Therefore Bowyer might have to consider the loan market to replace a player like Aribo. Here are three players he can go after.

Reece Brown

The Forest Green midfielder received a lot of praises for his performance in the League Two as he contributed with ten goals and 11 assists. Just like Aribo, Brown can do various jobs in the middle of the park, and he can potentially replace the attacking outlet provided by the former Charlton player.

Brown is already getting linked with Leeds United, Bristol City and Reading. Therefore there are quite a few people who believe that the midfielder would be able to thrive in the Championship. We think that Charlton should also join the race for him to replace Aribo.

Ovie Ejaria

The Liverpool midfielder had a spell with Rangers and Reading last season. Ejaria might have flattered to deceive at Rangers, but his form and performance for Reading were eye-catching. Ejaria could be proper like for like replacement for Aribo as he has a similar playing style and attributes. Reading are again likely to try to get him on loan.

Leeds United’s name have also been linked in the past few weeks. Nevertheless, now that Charlton are a Championship side themselves, they should have a decent chance of getting a deal done for the Liverpool man.

Josh Vela

The Bolton Wanderers man is going to be available on a free transfer as his contract is set to expire in the next few days. Like Aribo, Vela can do the job as a central midfielder as well as in the attacking half of the pitch. The 25-year-old is a tireless worker, and his passing is also neat and tidy. The midfielder has the experience of playing in over 100 games at the Championship level, and he could be a shrewd signing on a free transfer.
