Rangers midfielder Scott Arfield has emerged as a shock summer transfer target for English Premier League outfit Southampton, as reported by The Daily Mail.

The paper say they have ‘concrete interest’ in the Canadian international and that Rangers face a fight to keep him at Ibrox, despite the player only signing for Steven Gerrard last summer.

Saints value the 30-year-old as worth £3m, according to the report, although whether that would be enough to convince Rangers decision makers to part with him remains to be seen.

Arfield has been a key player in Gerrard’s team this season, making 42 appearances to date, scoring eleven goals and assisting seven times.

There’s an argument to say that attacking contribution could have been more consistent, but there’s no danger we should be thinking about letting him go in the upcoming transfer window.

The midfielder appears to be loving his time in Glasgow, but the lure of the English Premier League is always strong, so let’s hope this interest doesn’t materialise with any official offers in the close-season.

With Southampton apparently impressed, this is one to keen an eye on over the coming weeks and months.

Are you concerned about losing Arfield this summer? Have your say in the comments below…

  • Yes, very concerned. Please, please don’t sell him. We are just starting to get a good thing going, so don’t spoil it!!!

  • Can we not get him declared as Scottish and get him called up to the national team, God knows we need players like him.

  • He is under contract, and he is playing for a far bigger club. He is a first team player and will have European football.

  • Scott Arfield has shown that there is a football life after his EPL career halted! We have allowed a fantastic player to do what he wants to do…and that is play regular football… and the benefits are there for all to see, so keep him at Glasgow Rangers for at least one more season. After all, Scott is signed to us for the next three years, and he will get better as our team grows!!! Let’s not forget that most of the first team players at our beloved club have only been together for a single season, and therefore can only get better as time goes by!!! WE ARE THE PEOPLE ????????
