Speaking exclusively to This Is Futbol, former manager Barry Fry believes the Championship side would be open to striking a deal with the Premier League outfit.

“His manager has stated that he wouldn’t stand in his way,” Fry said. “So I think it would be a very good time now to go and buy him, and I think there is a deal to be done if West Ham want him.”

Since permanently signing for Blackburn from Newcastle United in 2018, Armstrong has gone on to score 64 goals in 160 matches, in all competitions.
