The Transfer Tavern‘s EFL spy has suggested that Adam Armstrong might end up at Fulham this window.
The Blackburn striker has established himself as one of the most lethal second-tier goalscorers in recent seasons, scoring 44 times in the Championship across the last two years combined, including 28 last term.
But the Rovers frontman has made just a handful of Premier League appearances during his teenage years with Newcastle and doesn’t have a top-flight goal to his name.
Should Fulham sign Newcastle striker Dwight Gayle?
With that in mind, another season at Championship level could benefit the 24-year-old, especially in a Fulham side that are expected to score plenty and challenge for promotion once again.
New Cottagers manager Marco Silva currently has Aleksandar Mitrovic at his disposal, but the Serbian scored just three times in the league last season and didn’t look up for the challenge for the majority of 2020-2021.
And with Fulham desperately needing another name regardless of whether Mitrovic sticks around, the EFL insider exclusively told The Transfer Tavern:
“Adam Armstrong from Blackburn could be one, similar to Dwight Gayle, but has more goals in his game in my opinion.
“He’s proven now and a good bid might get him to move to a big club like Fulham, with its wealth.”
