West Ham Fans Call On Moyes To Sign Blackburn Striker
One of the best feelings a football fan gets comes when they hear that their club is linked with a great player. That's the current state of most West Ham United fans, who have been left buzzing and in glorious excitement about the news of the Hammers boss David Moyes potentially bringing Blackburn Rovers striker Adam Armstrong to the London Stadium.
Moyes has been clamoring for a top striker at West Ham and has reportedly told the club's board of his desire for them to get him a great candidate for that position. The reports initially emerged in the past week that Moyes had been eyeing a potential transfer for the striker, but that it was nothing really concrete. However, according to Claret and Hugh, the interest is more concrete than earlier reported, and West Ham will reportedly try to make a move for the striker in the summer.
The excitement of the Hammers' fans at the prospect of watching Armstrong pull on the West Ham shirt is quite justifiable. The 24-year-old striker has been in sensational form for Blackburn this season and has scored an impressive 20 goals in 34 games so far this current campaign. The English striker is a typical forward that will improve the West Ham attack and the club should waste no time in trying to sign him.
His characteristics include a very impressive work rate, a blistering pace, his strength in the air, and has good finishing skills. His additional ability to win aerial duels is a big plus for West Ham, given how conversant they are with playing long balls. Some of the club's fans have taken to Twitter to urge the London club to do all they can to sign the Englishman in the summer as it would be a very reasonable deal.
