According to a report from Football League World, West Ham have received somewhat of a boost regarding our hopes of signing Adam Armstrong this summer with Blackburn now willing to accept less than £20 million for the striker.

Hammers boss David Moyes needs to bring at least one top class centre-forward to the London Stadium this summer, but preferably two.
Michail Antonio is currently our only senior centre-forward. That really is laughable for a club with European aspirations.
One of the names linked with a move to West Ham is Blackburn Rovers hitman Adam Armstrong (The Sun).
The 24-year-old was valued at around £25 million according to The Sun.
West Ham now have chance to sign Adam Armstrong for bargain fee
It seems as though Rovers’ stance on the striker’s price-tag has softened.
Football League World claims that Blackburn are now prepared to sell Armstrong for ‘less than £20 million’.
The 24-year-old’s contract is due to expire in the summer of 2022. So if he fails to sign a new contract, there is no way West Ham should be paying anything more than £15 million for him this summer.
Armstrong has been in great form this season with 20 goals in 35 games to his name thus far (Transfermarkt).
He seems to be ideally suited to David Moyes’ setup at the London Stadium.
And if West Ham can pick him up for around £12-15 million in the summer, it will be great business for us.
