Report: Hammers prepare bid for Rovers star

Portugal journalist Pedro Almeida claims that West Ham will make an initial offer of€28 million (£24m) to Blackburn for striker Adam Armstrong saying that talks ongoing.

Armstrong scored a second hat-trick of the season in the 5-2 win over Huddersfield Town and now has 25 goals this season for the Championship club.

The 24-year-old will move into the final year of his deal this summer, which unless he extends that beyond 2022, means the upcoming window offers Rovers’ best chance of recouping a big fee for the striker.

Asked if Rovers still held hopes of holding onto Armstrong, Blackburn manager Mowbray told the Lancashire Telegraph: “Let’s wait and see. Footballers are always in charge of their contractual situation, they sign the deals or they don’t.

Rovers’ top scorer signed for the club from boyhood side Newcastle United in 2018 for around £1.75m, taking a pay cut in the process when penning a four-year deal.

  1. Alot of money for a championship player… Look at Benrhama 25 million and hasn’t hit the ground running… Loads of potential in Benrhama but a our 10 to 15 million would not be a big risk when you think we lashed out 40 and 45 million on Anderson and Haller ⚒️⚒️

  2. Ings is the right type of player and Abraham they are quality, Armstrong is a decent championship player, we should also go for Ward Prowse who is the perfect replacement for Noble, then we need a left back that can defend and attack.

  3. The likes of Abraham and Armstrong are totally over valued so with so much at stake we will not be taking risks with either of these. For me Ings or Arne back as an experience striker plus a young forward like the Sparta Prague player is the shred investment, it will cost alot less and bang for buck we are getting better players.

  4. Wouldn’t want Arne within a thousand miles of our United squad!
    Last games with us he lumbered around like a cart horse and now at 32 and in China on allegedly £330,000 unlikely be a bargain especially with nightmare brother in tow!

  5. How much?
    Initial bid £24m? Sounds like some agents haven’t heard about the lack of resources available.

  6. I hope this is not true…very overrated imo

  7. Ing is great but maybe another sick note. Can we afford to take the risk. I would go for Sima or Hozlek from Sparta . Adam Armstrong would be worth a punt but Toney looks to have it all..
