West Ham United have been handed a huge boost with Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray claiming that he would never stand in the way of Adam Armstrong, if the striker wanted to leave Ewood Park (Lancashire Telegraph).

Hammers boss David Moyes wants to bring the 24-year-old to the London Stadium this summer (The Sun).
The Scot will be desperate to bolster his centre-forward ranks at West Ham.
Michail Antonio is currently the only recognised senior striker at the club.
The addition of Blackburn ace Adam Armstrong in the summer would be a very wise one.
The 24-year-old perfectly suits the system deployed by David Moyes what with his hustle and bustle.
Blackburn allegedly want around £25 million for the prolific striker, however, according to The Sun.
That price seems rather extortionate considering the fact that he is out of contract in the summer of 2022. Perhaps Rovers will ease their stance at the end of the season, who knows?
West Ham handed Adam Armstrong boost?
Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray told the Lancashire Telegraph how he will never stand in the 24-year-old’s way if a Premier League club come knocking:
“Of course, if the Premier League comes calling I would never try and deny a player the chance to go and play in the Premier League as long as the club is recompensed correctly for the value we thought and what we could reinvest.”
Surely Blackburn will have to sell Armstrong for less than £25 million this summer. Unless he signs a new deal of course.
If we can pick him up for around £12-15 million, it would be excellent value.
Armstrong has been in fine form for Rovers this season with 20 goals in 35 games to his name thus far (Transfermarkt).
David Moyes is building something very special at the London Stadium.
And the signing of Adam Armstrong in the summer would be further evidence of our exciting transformation.
