West Ham have made a bid for Blackburn striker Adam Armstrong, according to a claim from a journalist on Twitter.
Pedro Almeida posted on Wednesday night that an offer of €30m had been tabled, which equates to £25.4m.
That’s questionable in itself, given that Armstrong only has a contract until the end of next season.
It’s also a dangerous suggestion as no bids, or even handshake agreements, are allowed at this stage of proceedings.
Blackburn are also in no position to be promoted this season and the striker has been their shining light, scoring 19 goals in 33 Championship outings.
Almeida has a history of being bang on the money when it comes to dealings involving Portuguese and Brazilian players but it is rather bizarre to see him reporting on a potential transfer between two English clubs.
Armstrong is certainly an intriguing option and the Irons do want to sign a striker following the departure of Seb Haller but we doubt anything is quite this advanced yet.
We wouldn’t be getting exited just yet!
