Likely Hammers target, Blackburn’s Adam Armstrong looks certain for a move into the big time this summer
David Moyes is known to be a big admirer and Rovers boss Tony Mowbray is doing nothing to cool the interest admitting that his striker showed flashes of ‘Premier League quality’ over the weekend, speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph.
The former England U21 international got his 20th goal of the season with an excellent lob against Barnsley last week.
He did miss a penalty which would have given him his 21st goal however, and that played a part in the team losing to Nottingham Forest 1-0, However, Mowbray still continued to praise his much admired forward.
He said: “I thought Armstrong was Premier League quality. He looked really special, I thought, yet he missed the penalty.
Armstrong moved to Blackburn Rovers on a 2million deal three years ago and Mowbray’s comments could be interpreted as coming from a boss who is ready to make a profit on his star player.
David Moyes is understood to have been in talks with Mowbray about a potential move for Armstrong in the recent weeks.
His performance in the Championship show that he could be able to step up to the Premier League with ease – just like Jarrod Bowen did!
