If you’re a fan of Crystal Palace, you might know that the club is in talks with Blackburn over a deal for Adam Armstrong, according to Sky Sports.

Southampton and Norwich are also keen, with the Saints arguably the favourites after selling Danny Ings for £30m.

However, while Ralph Hasenhuttl has the money – and the space in his squad for Armstrong – the 24-year-old wants to join the Eagles.

Interestingly, there is another aspect to the deal which could benefit the south Londoners.

Adam Armstrong and Joachim Andersen share an agency

Now, this is very intriguing.

As Transfermarkt shows, Armstrong is represented by ICM Stellar Sports.

Coincidentally, ICM Stellar Sports also represent Joachim Andersen, who has just arrived at Selhurst Park from Lyon.

It might not mean much, but obviously, the Eagles have only recently been in contact with ICM Stellar Sports to arrange the Andersen deal, so that could help them in their pursuit of Armstrong.

Adam Armstrong would be a great signing

Is Dougie Freedman trying to build a Championship All-Stars team?

If Freedman can add Armstrong to those two, after his 29 goal haul for Blackburn last season, it would be an exquisite signing.

Hopefully, the Eagles can find a way to get this one over the line.
