Rangers interested in move for unsettled international midfielder; reports



Rangers have been linked with yet another midfield target, this time Burnley’s reportedly unsettled Scottish-born Canadian international central midfielder Scott Arfield.

The 29-year old is mulling over his future and Burnley boss Sean Dyche has conceded he may well reject the new contract offer given the former Scotland youth international has only six months left on his current deal and as yet has not put pen to paper on Burnley’s extension terms.

Heavily used this season, with a couple of goals for good measure, albeit benched seven times too, Arfield would represent experience at the highest level for Graeme Murty to invest in, be it now for a cut-price deal, or a free transfer in the summer, but Rangers are naturally not the only side sniffing around a player of this quality, with David Moyes’ West Ham said to be interested too.

This is certainly the calibre of player Rangers fans are starting to enjoy being linked with, with the likes of Arfield, Jason Cummings, Steven Naismith and Greg Docherty all heavily mentioned in Rangers’ circles.

But Arfield would be quite a snatch, and Rangers might just be able to pull it off.

  1. don't think there's much hope of Arfield coming to us unfortunately. would be an excellent signing but going from a premiership club on good wages to come back to Scotland for a pay cut just isn't going to happen. Naismith is a far more realistic target but it looks like Nutty isn't interested and we're going to miss out on him as well. good start to the window getting a couple of players in but starting to look like lack of money available for transfer fees is going to cost us dear.

  3. No chance of getting this guy. He's got to be on 30 to 40 K a week at present. Can't see him dropping to £5 to £8K especially as he not a Rangers supporter...

  4. Would be Interesting to see if We could get Van Persie to Ibrox This Time?

    ...Finished in Turkey and planning to go back to Dutch Football with Feyenoord

    We could offer him one last go in British Football 😃
    And he would be Free
    Would be Quality! 👌

    Wages i agree are a massive block but We should try and make this Happen
