Chelsea scouts were treated to a forward master class from striker target Waris Majeed, according to reports from Sweedish newspaper Expressen.

The Blues were also joined by members of the PSV Eindhoven, FC Porto and Napoli scouting networks in the stands, according to ElfVoetbal in Holland and CalcioMercato in Italy, with a number of clubs starting to show a keen interest in the 21-year-old.

Majeed, who earned his solitary cap for Ghana in February 2012, moved to the Sweedish Allsvenskan two years ago, and has instantly impressed for Peter Gerhardsson’s side.

And, with various scouts in the stands, the youngster picked the perfect time to score three times for Hacken in an emphatic 5-1 win over Syrianska.

Chelsea scouts are sure to have been impressed by the striker’s return, but a move for the player would still be seen as a huge gamble by Roberto Di Matteo if he were to pursue the African.

The Blues are light up-front following Didier Drogba’s departure in the summer, with Fernando Torres and Daniel Sturridge the only senior players currently on the books after Romelu Lukaku’s loan move away from Daniel Sturridge.

Radamel Falcao has been more prominently linked with a move to west London, and realistically the Colombian would be a much more popular choice at Chelsea.
