Portuguese giants FC Porto are reportedly leading the race for the signing of Ghanaian striker Majeed Waris as talks are far advanced with FC Lorient according to Yahoo Sport.

Ligue 1 sides SM Caen and Saint Etienne had been in negotiations about a potential deal, but FC Porto appear to be stronger in terms of finance to land the 26-year-old.

Waris was linked with moves to English premiership sides West Bromwich Albion and West Ham United some months ago.

He made 8 appearances in all competitions and scored two goals for FC Lorient in the first half of the campaign.
