After breaking through at Falkirk as a youngster, and a spell at Huddersfield Town, the 29-year-old Burnley midfielder has been with the Premier League club since 2013, and has cemented himself as one of the club’s most reliable players.
And, according to Sky Sports, he’s become a target for Rangers in recent months, and with his contract set to expire this summer, he’s available to sign a pre-contract with a potential new employer now.
Of course, the deal is far from complete, but Rangers supporters definitely like what they are hearing:
Scott Arfield good fukn signing by the way

Scott Arfield would be a class signing if rumours are true
— Arran (@ArranTro13) April 23, 2018
Arfield is an excellent piece of business

If we sign MacArthur and Arfield we will have some excellent depth in midfield however I imagine that'll be the end of Halliday and probably Holt.

It’s understood that we have been after scott arfield for some time the fact this is just surfacing to the public is good imo. This will have nothing to do with who is in charge next season he’s been on our radar for a while 🔴⚪️🔵

Nothing quite like hearing we're signing arfield and Mccarthur to be managed by alex neil to make us all think we're winning the title again 😂 love it

Central midfield options of: Dorrans, Jack, Rossiter, Arfield, Docherty and McArthur would be a massive upgrade on what we have in current pool.

We are close to securing Scott Arfield on a pre contract according to sky sports.
Good bit of business I’d say!

Are Rangers about to sign Scott Arfield?! What a signing that would be for them! Always rated Arfield. Hard working, technically good midfielder. #RFC #WATP #Rangers #Scotland #Burnley #BFC @RangersFC

With Ibrox season tickets up for renewal, ambitious transfer stories regularly rear their head at this time of year, but what do you think of the news?
Would Arfield automatically improve the Rangers midfield?
