​Blackburn find replacement for Southampton target Armstrong

Blackburn Rovers have secured a replacement for Southampton target Adam Armstrong.

With the Premier League side intent on signing the attacker, Rovers are keen to secure a replacement before completing any sale.

Saints and Norwich are the clubs closest to signing Armstrong from Blackburn.

The Lancashire club are willing to sell for a fee of around £15 million, as Armstrong is out of contract in 2022.

According to the Lancashire Telegraph, Rover want to sign striker Rhys Healey from Toulouse to take Armstrong's place in the team.
