Blackburn identify replacement for West Ham, Southampton target Armstrong

Blackburn Rovers are preparing for the sale of Adam Armstrong.

The Sun says West Ham, Southampton and Norwich are battling it out for £25million-rated striker.

Armstrong, 24, scored a sensational 28 goals in the Championship last season as Blackburn finished 15th.

And Rovers are lining up a move for Jerry Yates to fill the impending void.

The Blackpool forward fired 23 goals to help Neil Critchley's side win promotion to English football's second tier through the play-offs.

Bristol City, Nottingham Forest and West Brom have all expressed an interest in the 24-year-old ahead of a summer swoop.
