German Bundesliga giants Schalke 04 have opened preliminary discussions with BK Hacken about signing Ghana striker Abdul Majeed Waris, Ghanasoccernet.com can exclusively confirm.
Officials from the Gelsenkirchen met their Hacken counterparts in Gothenburg last week and they are reportedly settling on a $1.2 million fee for the 21-year-old, who is also a target for Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven and European champions Chelsea.
PSV Eindhoven have been alerted by the reports in the Dutch media and will officially table an offer before the close of the week.
Chelsea, meanwhile, are expected to continue monitoring the progress of the former Right to Dream Academy graduate who played part of the Black Stars 2013 AFCON qualification on Saturday.
Mega-spending Manchester City sent their Football Development Executive Patrick Vieira to watch the hot-shot in September.
Waris has raked in 24 goals from all competitions this season for BK Hacken.
