Hacken coach prefers Arsenal move for in-form Ghana striker Waris

Hacken coach Peter Gerhardsson is hoping in-form striker Abdul Majeed Waris ends up at English giants Arsenal.

The 21-year-old’s form this season has been just phenomenal in Hacken’s bid to win the Swedish top flight.

Waris has scored an impressive 22 goals and currently tops the goalscoring chart in the Allsvenskan.

The Ghana international is one of the hottest commodities in Europe, with English champions Manchester City sending scouts to monitor the Right to Dream Academy graduate.

However coach Gerhardsson says he’ll prefer his priced asset joins the Gunners as their style of play will best suit the future development of Waris.

"As a coach you always want to keep your players but sometimes you have to realize when the player is good enough he has to go,” Gerhardsson said.

“I just hope that in this case he ends up in the best environment. If Arsenal make the offer, I might say yes.

"They do not have any forwards so it won’t be too difficult.”

Waris’ impressive form for club has seen him earn consistent calls to the Ghana national team, the Black Stars.

    It will be a disaster if he moves to Arsenal, he is not yet a complete player as most Ghanaians think. He should move to the Dutch Eredivsie and aid his development before making a BIG move.

    He should try the Dutch eredivisie first. Cause Sweden is the 23th best league in Europe, and England is the best league. Quite a big step, maybe would be better to move Holland or France first.
