Transfer Rumour: Norwich Targeting Blackburn's 28 Goal Striker Adam Armstrong

Southampton are leading the race for the signature of Blackburn Rovers striker Adam Armstrong, despite Norwich City recently joining the chase for the player, according to reports publsihed for the first time today in the Daily Telegraph.

Armstrong has sparked off a furious race for his signature this summer after another impressive last season in the Championship.

Blackburn may well have finished in the bottom half of the league at the end of the season, but Armstrong scored another 28 goals last term, taking his record to an impressive 46 goals in the English second division over the previous two seasons.

Everton and West Ham have been previously been reported to have shown an interest in signing Adam Armstrong, while Norwich have seemingly joined the chase at this later stage for the 24-year-old's signature.  Although it has been claimed in the media that Southampton currently have the edge in the race to sign the prolific striker this transfer window.

The Saints are in the market for a striker amid an amount of ongoing uncertainty over the future of Danny Ings at the club, and Armstrong has emerged as one of their preferred options and the club are actively pushing to take him to St. Mary’s this summer.

Blackburn are reported to be prepared to cash in on the star front man Armstrong, but only only if the offer is at the right price.
