Southampton are thought to be interested in the striker, with the MailOnline reporting they could sign him for as little as £8m.
Would you like to see Armstrong at Southampton?
Too much of a gamble
On the reports that Southampton could sign Armstrong for £8m, Palmer said:
“£8m is a bargain and his wages aren’t going to be astronomical. I wouldn’t have thought he’s on 20-25 grand a week. I wouldn’t have thought he’s anywhere near that.
“It will be a good deal for somebody, a really good deal for somebody.”
The Championship to the Premier League is, of course, quite the step up. Is Armstrong capable of the replicating the sort of form he showed last term in the top flight? That remains to be seen.
Given that goal record, though, and for only £8m, the Englishman is surely worth a punt for any Premier League side currently looking for a new striker.
