Scanning the resulting page that you see will do little to analyse the threat. What you need to do is to analyse what happens when you click the link and the code that is run by your browser in each step.

To do that, you need to run the URL through a malware analysis sandbox. There are several types, some free, some commercial, some local, some in the cloud.

There is also Joesandbox, and multiple vendors with their own options.
