Everton are reportedly eyeing up a potential move to try and sign Adam Armstrong in the summer transfer window, according to Football Insider.
As per the news outlet, the Goodison Park faithful are tracking the Blackburn Rovers striker ahead of the summer.
A recruitment source has told the publication that scouts from the Merseyside club watched him in action against AFC Bournemouth in the EFL Championship on Easter Monday as they are in the market for a new number nine.
Armstrong will enter the final year of his current deal at Ewood Park in June, meaning that he may be available at a cheaper price should the Lancashire club be unable to tie him down to a longer deal.
Everton should sign Armstrong
Carlo Ancelotti’s team should look no further than signing Armstrong in the summer if they want to ease the goal scoring burden off of Dominic Calvert-Lewin up top.
The 24-year-old has scored no fewer than 20 goals and made a further three assists in 37 games in total over all competitions so far in the 2020/21 term (Transfermarkt), showing that he clearly knows where the back of the net is.
Should Everton sign Armstrong?
He also has the added weapon of ‘explosive pace’ as his manager Tony Mowbray pointed out in a media interview back in November, and could therefore complement Calvert-Lewin’s hold-up play if they were deployed together.
Currently valued at £14.4m by Transfermarkt, the Englishman could well turn out to be a bargain for the Toffees due to his contract situation.
