Phil Radley, who is quoted here by the Daily Star, has revealed he is unaware of any supposed interest in his client, despite reports that United sent assistant manager Ryan Giggs to Turkey to run the rule over Waris ahead of a future move.
“I wasn’t aware of Manchester United travelling to the Europa League fixture – but Premier League interest does not surprise me,” Radley told reporters on Tuesday.
“There were Premier League clubs looking at Waris in the summer, but he was unlucky at the World Cup – he picked up a thigh injury in Ghana’s final warm-up game – were it not for that he would have started alongside Asamoah Gyan and then I think those clubs would have come in for him.
“Waris certainly has the qualities for the Premier League – he is very quick and strong. Clearly he is a proven goal threat, but he is also a real fighter who never gives up and will chase down lost causes and put himself in dangerous areas.”
The 23-year-old only joined Trabzonspor from Spartak Moscow in September, and would command a transfer fee in the region of £12m despite being yet to score a league goal for his new club.
