Newcastle in pole position to sign No.7 Championship striker

Magpies are believed to be interested in signing Blackburn Rovers striker Adam Armstrong, according to LancsLive. U21 England international joined Blackburn from Magpies permanently in 2018 and has excelled for the Championship side this campaign, scoring nine goals and assisting six in 33 league matches.

This form has attracted the attention of several Premier League teams, and according to LancsLive, Blackburn would demand an eight-figure fee for the striker. Adam under contract until 2022, it is believed that they will listen to offers that can match their valuation, as they’re under no pressure to sell.

Magpies are rumoured to be one of the clubs considering a move for Armstrong, with the club’s fears over Joelinton’s performances spurring their intrigue in their former footballer.

With Newcastle United having so little firepower among their group of forwards, they could certainly do worse than exploring the possibility of bringing Adam

back to St James’ Park. Dwight Gayle and Yoshinori Muto both have uncertain futures, while Andy Carroll could leave the team when his deal expires in the summer, having suffered yet another injury setback.

Valentino Lazaro could yet return to Inter Milan, Miguel Almiron is inconsistent at best, and Joelinton struggles to score goals, so Magpies will likely need reinforcements in the summer.
