Waris is perfect for the Premier League, says agent
Amid reported interest from Manchester United in the Ghana striker, Majeed Waris’s agent Phil Radley has declared himself unsurprised by the attention the 23-year-old is attracting.
The Red Devils are reported to have sent assistant manager Ryan Giggs to watch the forward play for Trabzonspor in the Europa League on Thursday.
Radley revealed to Goal that he had long been aware of interest from the Premier League in his client, who was a star of the second half of the season in Ligue 1 with Valenciennes last term.
“I wasn’t aware of Manchester United travelling to the Europa League fixture – but Premier League interest does not surprise me,” said Radley.
“There were Premier League clubs looking for Waris in the summer, but he was unlucky at the World Cup – he picked up a thigh injury in Ghana’s final warm-up game – were it not for that he would have started alongside Asamoah Gyan and then I think those clubs would have come in for him.”
Radley proceeded to talk up Waris’s attributes, which he believes are a perfect fit for the English top-flight. “Waris certainly has the qualities for the Premier League – he is very quick and strong. Clearly he is a proven goal threat, but he is also a real fighter who never gives up and will chase down lost causes and put himself in dangerous areas.”
