Hammers boss David Moyes is desperate to sign a top class centre-forward this summer.

The Hammers are keen to bring him to the London Stadium according to The Sun and Claret and Hugh.

Lancs Live reckon that Blackburn are still holding out for £20 million for the 24-year-old. So the East London outfit are clearly playing the waiting game with just one year remaining on his deal at Ewood Park.

West Ham must act fast with Southampton readying Adam Armstrong bid

Lancs Live claims that the Saints are ready to lodge another bid for the prolific Rovers front-man.

 

So the Hammers will surely have to move with speed and precision now if they want to bring the 24-year-old to the London Stadium.

Moyes should be doing everything he can to bring Armstrong to the London Stadium.

He racked up an incredible 28 goals in 40 league games and finished the season behind only Brentford striker Ivan Toney in the Championship goalscoring charts (Transfermarkt).

Armstrong has everything that Moyes looks for in a striker.

The Blackburn hitman is incredibly mobile, possesses blistering pace and works his socks off each and every time he takes to the pitch.
