Chelsea will go neck-to-neck in a tussle with Napoli for Abdul Majid Waris according to Swedish tabloid Expressen, after the English club became one of a massive ten clubs to have sent scouts to watch the 21-year old Ghanaian.
The scouts are expected to send raving reports about the striker who chose the right time to notch his 22nd goal of the season with a hat trick in a match BK Hacken won by 5 goals to 1 against Syrianska over the weekend.
Chelsea are in the market for a striker as they seek to boost their attacking line which is left with only Fernando Torres as the only natural striker left and with four weeks left to end the Swedish Allsvenskan.
Waris looks like ending the season as the top scorer with three players tied at a distant thirteen goals – a credential which will boost his chances of a big money move to the champions league winners.
Meanwhile clubs like Napoli, Everton, PSV Eindhoven and Porto whose scouts were also in attendance that fateful day are all set to jostle each other for the Tamale-born striker.
The highly rated goal-machine holds the enviable record of being the first man to score five times in a match in the Swedish league in the 21st century and has already been capped by Ghana.
