The Former Right to Dream Academy star said he had only Porto in mind when they showed interest despite the competition from Ligue 1 side, Caen.

“For me when I heard of Porto’s interest, Even though I had other options. Porto is a big club in Portugal. It is probably the club in which my dreams can come true, to play in a top league and in the Uefa Champions League”

The 26 year old also revealed he seemed the counsel of some of his Black Stars teammates before making the move.

“I talked to some friends, Christian Atsu and Opare, who had been here before. They helped me decide to come here”

Waris spoke about potential strike partnership with Cameroon forward Aboubakar, Marega and Brahimi and believes he will team up with them easily upfront since they have have similar qualities.

“They are fantastic players, they pretty much score all the time. I am also here to help the team score more goals and win. We can probably score a few more goals together. That is the most important thing, not who scores, but that we do it together.

“I think I can match well with them, because they have an offensive mentality, which I also have. It’s a matter of understanding each other and working together."
