Adam Armstrong is one of West Ham United’s main priorities this summer, according to ExWHUEmployee.
David Moyes will be keen to strengthen his squad after what has been a hugely impressive season for the club. The Hammers sit fifth in the Premier League table and sit within three points of the Champions League places.
ExWHUEmployee has claimed that ahead of the summer transfer window, Blackburn Rovers striker Adam Armstrong is one of the club’s main priorities.
Blackburn Rovers quiz: 19 facts you may not know about Ewood Park – But are they true?
Armstrong has been in excellent form for Rovers this season, scoring 19 goals in 33 Championship appearances for Tony Mowbray’s side.
The 24-year-old could be set to leave Ewood Park as Blackburn’s play-off hopes now dead and buried, and the club have reportedly slapped a £25million price tag on his shoulders.
Speaking on the West Ham Way podcast on Wednesday night, ExWHUEmployee said: “I think Armstrong has always been one of the top ones because Moyes likes the impact that Bowen has had.
“He wants another player who’s proven in England. He’s more keen to buy domestically than abroad.”
Blackburn have dropped to 15th in the Championship table, sitting 16 points off the play-offs.
I don’t think Blackburn would begrudge Armstrong of a move to the Premier League and to West Ham.
He’s been a great servant for Blackburn Rovers and has scored plenty of goals over the last few years.
He’s been in incredible form this season and you would bank on him smashing the 25-goal mark this term.
West Ham do need to bolster their attacking options and bring in a prolific goalscorer. But I do feel that £25million would be a lot of money for him.
