Southampton fans are livid after it was reported that the Saints do not want to get close to Blackburn Rovers’ valuation of striker Adam Armstrong.
Danny Ings dropped a bombshell on Southampton earlier on during this window as he turned down a four-year contract to stay at St. Mary’s Stadium which would have also made him the best paid player in the club’s history (Sky Sports). As such, Saints are in dire need of striker for next term and beyond.
They have been linked with a move for Armstrong, who netted 29 goals in 43 games in all competitions last term (Transfermarkt). However, according to The Lancashire Telegraph, the club do not want to get close to Blackburn’s asking price after having a bid of around £10m rejected for the forward.

The news was shared on Twitter by @SaintsExtra, and it attracted the frustration of the supporters – they clearly feel the board must invest in the squad if Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side want to survive in the top flight. The fans took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Armstrong news below
“Makes no sense, we didn’t renew Bertrand, Ings won’t accept his contract, we have offloaded some players already. Just pay the money!”
“You have GOT to be joking…”
“We’re nailed on for relegation this year”
