Blackburn could hold West Ham to ransom

Blackburn Rovers will demand a fee in the region of £25m for their striker Adam Armstrong this summer, despite his contract being up next year claims the Sun newspaper.

The 24–year-old twenty-goal Ewood Park hotshot is likely to move to the Premier League this summer and Hammers boss David Moyes leads the hunt according to recent reports.

Rovers think they can justify the price due to Championship goalscorers previously moving for similar sky-high numbers like £28m Ollie Watkins, who left Brentford for Aston Villa back in September. But Armstrong’s value is affected by the fact he is a free agent in 2022.

Blackburn need to demand a huge sum as Newcastle United are due a hefty 40 per cent of the profit.

Moyes has been doing personal checks on Armstrong as he steps up his chase but his West Ham will not get him for the £10m they had hoped to shell out.

  1. After another full year of covid19 im not sure too many clubs will be cashed up enough to pay that sort of money for a championship striker. I guess we’ll find out.

  2. Personally I dont rate him ,but last year of contract or not 10 million forca player a few are after is a bit of an insult…if he were our player would we sell for that ..I doubt it …then again we sold haller for a silly price so who knows
