Lorient striker Abdul Majeed Waris is attracting plenty of interest from the United Kingdom, according to a recent report.

According to a report by The Daily Mail, West Ham United are one of four clubs considering a move for Majeed Waris this summer.

Waris is also wanted by Celtic, Brighton and Hove Albion and Fulham this summer.

The former Manchester City academy player currently plays for Lorient but he may be looking for an exit after his side were relegated from Ligue 1 last season.

Playing mainly as a winger, the Ghana international scored 21 goals in 58 games for Lorient but might move on rather than stay in the second tier of French football.

The former Spartak Moscow man also plays as a striker and is renowned for his pace and strength.

If West Ham want to sign him as a winger, he could be a good addition if Sofiane Feghouli and/or Robert Snodgrass departs.

In terms of strikers, West Ham could probably do with a back-up option.

Chicharito will start for the Hammers but back-up duo Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho are injury prone.

Toni Martinez is also available up front but he is still young and inexperienced.

A second choice striker would be a handy purchase but £9m is a steep price for someone who does not have a proven track record at Premier League level.
