It is claimed that West Ham boss David Moyes wants his scouts to track Blackburn star Armstrong ahead of a summer bid. The Scotsman is a big fan of the 18-goal striker and considered an £8 million offer in the January window but did not go ahead with a move with Rovers wanting more than £10 million plus for their star striker. The Hammers have been left short of options up front with the departure of club record signing Sebastian Haller in January as the Frenchman sealed a move to Dutch giants Ajax. Meanwhile, Everton and Fulham both want to shore up their attacking ranks in the summer and want Armstrong in order to shore up their attack. The jump from Championship to the Premier League is quite a big one but we have seen players making the transition look really smooth and Armstrong could well be next in line. Unlike most centre-forwards, Armstrong does not boast a big frame. He is just 5 feet 6 inches tall that makes him really short compared to traditional English strikers … [Read more...] about West Ham United want Championship striker, a good deal?

Aubameyang and Hector Bellerin put Arsenal 4-0 up by the 47th minute at Emirates Stadium, though Leeds did strike back twice to make things a little more uncomfortable for Mikel Arteta's side. That match followed on from Wolves beating Southampton in the day's early kick-off, and West Brom holding Manchester United to a 1-1 draw – Bruno Fernandes' stunner earning the Red Devils a point. RESULTS | POINTS TABLE | FIXTURES In the late game, lowly Fulham picked up a much-needed win by seeing off a lacklustre Everton 2-0 at Goodison Park. 23 - Leeds have both scored (40) and conceded (42) 40+ goals in just 23 Premier League games this season; only Tottenham in 2007-08 hit 40 goals for and against after fewer matches in the competition's history (22 games).

Elliott signed his first professional contract with the Reds as a 17-year-old in July 2020, having made his debut for the club in an EFL Cup match against MK Dons in 2019, becoming the youngest player to start a game in Liverpool's history. The Fulham youth product went on to make 13 appearances for Jurgen Klopp's side before moving to Blackburn on a season-long loan in October 2020 and he has played 23 games and scored four goals this season for Rovers. Elliott became the Premier League's youngest ever player while at Fulham, playing in a 1-0 defeat to Wolves in May 2019, and has been capped at England under-15, under-16 and under-17 level. After the clubs could not agree a fee at the time of his transfer, the case went to tribunal, and the Professional Football Compensation Committee (PFCC) made its judgement on Wednesday. The London club revealed in a statement that they are "very pleased" to be awarded a record compensation fee for a 16-year-old player.
