Commenting on the links with Hatayspor striker Aaron Boupendza, C&H reveal that the Championship attacker is a far more likely signing and remains a priority for West Ham.
West Ham prioritise Armstrong
Armstrong, who has bagged a prolific 19 goals in 33 appearances for Rovers in England’s second tier this season, is attracting interest from the east Londoners and GSB as a result.
Another recent claim by C&H revealed that West Ham wish to sign Jesse Lingard on a permanent deal this summer and potentially two new strikers, and Armstrong could be one of them as the insider shares this update.
He isn’t the only Championship star David Moyes has been keeping tabs on according to recent reports, with the Daily Star saying at the start of this month that Ivan Toney is also on a shortlist.
Transfer Tavern take
Pundit Gabriel Agbonlahor, speaking to Football Insider, is certainly enthusiastic about a potential move for Armstrong – previously heralding him as a would-be ‘perfect signing‘ for the Irons.
As this news emerges that Armstrong looks set to be made a priority, time will tell whether GSB manage to pull off a deal to sign the prolific forward.
However, he could be a potentially great acquisition judging by his goal return this season.
