After finishing the season in 4th place, 6 points behind Super Lig champions Galatasaray, Trabzonspor have started their transfer operations for this summer, report Fanatik.

The Turkish club want to keep the young core of the team and are now looking to add a couple of experienced players for next season.

One of their targets is reportedly Cardiff City defender Bruno Ecuele Manga, and Fanatik say the Gabon international tops Trabzonspor’s shortlist.

Karadeniz Firtinasi are looking to sign a centre back in this window and Fanatik report Cardiff City player is keen to play for the Super Lig club as they will be in Europe next season.

It’s claimed Trabzonspor will make a move for Manga in the coming days and they will do everything they can to convince him to join the club. The 30 year old will become a free agent at the end of the month when his contract expires with the Bluebirds.

Manga played 38 games for Cardiff City last season.
