FIVE English Premier League clubs scout on Ghana striker Majeed Waris

Abdul Majeed Waris was watched by five English Premier League clubs.

The number of English Premier League interested in signing in-form Ghana striker Abdul Majeed Waris has increased.

Scouts and representatives of five clubs were in France to watch him in the Ligue 1 last week.

Newcastle, Hull City, West Bromwich Albion and newly-promoted Leicester City were in the stands as the on-loan Valenciennes striker scored in their 2-1 home defeat to Lyon.

Last month, Everton manager Roberto Martinez sent an emissary to watch him on a night he scored a brace.

The 22-year-old who moved to the Ligue 1 in January on a loan move, has scored nine goals in 12 appearances.

Waris is owned by Spartak Moscow and he is contracted to the Russian Premier League side until June 2017.

    Our regular 4_4_2 for Germany and Portugal and 4_3_3 diamond for USA And we have the men that way Boateng could either play as 7 or 11 and the middle could be kodwo Asamoah, Essien, Rabieu/Aquah / muntari or Badu

    @Edem tight midfield takes away the pressure from the defence and the goal keeper.Against the U.S. 3-5-2 is the way to go but we have to revert to our 4-2-3-1 against the Germany and Portugal.

    Why would you not tighten up midfield for Germany and Portugal? After all they know how to dribble unlike USA the put together passes

    Why not 4-3-2-1 or a different combo that still protects our GK with a back 4 since arguably we have the weakest GK in group G (Neuer, Howard, & Rui Patricio). What about; Our back 4 (whoever wins the job) Muntari/Essien as(DM), KASA,& Dede as 3 mids, Waris & KPB as 2 attacking mids Gyan as striker. You still get the 5 guys in the middle of the park, but also get a back 4 to protect our GK.

    If Everton come for him, he should go as long as Roberto Martinez is still in charge. He will improve no end under Martinez's tutelage. Avoid Newcastle like the plague- too much politics going on there. The rest aren't too bad either as long as he gets first team football.

    God willing you will play in the BPL soon…Ghana needs to go with a 3-5-2 formation in Brazil with Kp playing behind Warris and Gyan
