Blackburn slap whopping £25m price tag on West Ham target Adam Armstrong despite striker being free agent in 2022

BLACKBURN ROVERS want a stunning £25million for striker Adam Armstrong — in a shock for West Ham and his other admirers.

The 20-goal Ewood Park hotshot, 24, may move to the Premier League this summer and Hammers boss David Moyes leads the hunt.

Blackburn want £25m for Adam Armstrong despite the fact he’ll be a free agent in 2022

Rovers think they can justify the price due to Championship goalscorers previously moving for similar sky-high numbers — like £28m Ollie Watkins, who left Brentford for Aston Villa back in September.

But Armstrong’s value is affected by the fact he is a FREE agent in 2022.

Blackburn need to demand a huge sum as Newcastle United are due a hefty 40 per cent of the profit.

Moyes has been doing personal checks on Armstrong as he steps up his chase — but his West Ham will not get him for the £10m they had hoped to shell out.

Meanwhile, Carlisle are cheering every time Dean Henderson plays for Manchester United — and counting the cash.

The League Two outfit sold keeper Henderson to United at the age of 14 and pick up £10,000 whenever he is picked.

Until now the keeper has mainly been sent on loan — Carlisle got nothing for that.

And if he moves on, they will grab an even bigger pay-day because the Cumbrians come in for five per cent of any sale.

Elsewhere, Rangers and Celtic plan to BUY slots in the Scottish League for their Under-21 sides — a move that will send shivers through clubs in England.

The Old Firm want to join an extended League Two and pay around £1.5million each for the membership.

That cash windfall may get the vote from hard-up clubs who will be asked to back the proposal.

But lower league EFL clubs are worried Premier League clubs could plan a similar venture in England.
