According to a report from the Lancashire Telegraph, the value of alleged West Ham United transfer target Adam Armstrong is ‘rapidly decreasing’.
The 24-year-old is out of contract with Blackburn Roves in the summer of 2022.
The Hammers are keen to sign Armstrong in the summer, according to a report from the Sun.
The 24-year-old is a key player at Ewood Park and Blackburn Rovers chief executive Steve Waggott suggested that it will take an offer in the region of £30 million to tempt them into selling the striker (Lancs Live).
That’s an awful lot of money for someone who has just 18 months remaining on his current deal, however.
Surely West Ham boss David Moyes will be able to bring him to the London Stadium for a lot less than that, especially the longer time goes on with Armstrong signing a new deal with Rovers.
West Ham could get Adam Armstrong on the cheap
The Lancashire Telegraph claims that the 24-year-old’s value is rapidly decreasing as his contract runs down.
The Sun claims that Armstrong could be available for around £10 million in the summer, and that fee seems reasonable considering the fact that he would then have just 12 months remaining in his contract at Ewood Park.
The Blackburn hitman would be an excellent addition or West Ham.
Armstrong has been in fine form for Rovers this season with 19 goals in 30 games to his name thus far (Transfermarkt).
He possesses blistering pace and is an incredibly hard worker. The 24-year-old seems to be ideally suited to David Moyes’s setup at the London Stadium.
And if Armstrong fails to sign a new contract with Blackburn anytime soon, there is every chance that the Hammers could pick him up for a bargain fee in the summer.
