Rangers midfielder Scott Arfield is a target for Southampton this summer.
Since arriving from Burnley ahead of the current season the Canada captain has played regularly for Steven Gerrard’s side – making 42 appearances for the Scottish club which have included the three Old Firm games as well as a successful run in the Europa League.
And his performances have caught the eye of Southampton who are understood to have a concrete interest in Arfield.

The 30-year-old has impressed at Ibrox this season – scoring 11 goals from midfield, including a hat-trick against Motherwell last weekend. He’s also added eight assists to his tally making him the most productive midfielder in the league.
But Rangers are now facing a fight to keep hold of him ahead of next season.
Arfield already has vast Premier League experience with Burnley, and Southampton believe his signing would represent a risk-free swoop as they have proven success of recent years with the recruitment of Stuart Armstrong and Steven Davis from the Scottish Premiership.
Rangers are likely to value Arfield around the £3million mark.
