Southampton fans have been reacting to the news that the club want to sign Adam Armstrong from Blackburn Rovers this summer.
This transfer window promises to be a busy one for the Saints as they aim to prepare for the next season. The previous term was a mixed one, as they reached an F.A Cup semi-final but also fell to a 15th place finish in the Premier League, and if they want to move up the table they will need to make some clever purchases.
Now, according to Football Insider, the Saints are leading the race for Armstrong along with newly-promoted side Norwich City. The Championship side are said to be looking for £15m for the 24-year-old, who scored 29 goals in 43 matches in all competitions last term (Transfermarkt).
