Reports reaching our desk at GhanaMansports.com have it that WestHam United, Celtic, Fulham and Brighton are tracking to acquire the services of Ghanaian and Lorient striker Abdul Majeed Waris.
Waris, 27, have been on the radar of these British clubs as they are looking to secure the signature of the Manchester City trialist who is reported to be available for around £9m.
Waris came to England when he was 17 on a student visa from the Right to Dream Academy and studied at Hartpury College in Gloucestershire while playing at the Nike academy.
However, he was unable to gain a work permit and signed for BK Hacken in Sweden on the recommendation of former England assistant manager Tord Grip.
Waris who now plays for Lorient scored 26 goals in 32 games at BK Hacken to become Sweden’s player of the year in 2012. He then moved on to sign for Spartak Moscow in Russia.
He left the club after racial abuse and ended up with Lorient where he has banged in 21 goals from 58 appearances.
He is a versatile striker as he can play on the wings and his pace, technique and power is reported to be the reason behind these clubs seeking to sign him.
