Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs striker Pollen Ndlanya has called on the club's management to go all out and secure the signature of Lebogang Manyama.

Reports coming out of Turkey are that his side Konyaspor are ready to listen to offers for the former Cape Town City attacking midfielder, who has been heavily linked with a return to the Absa Premiership.

The 27-year-old joined the Turkish side after an impressive 2016/17 season with City, winning the Footballer of the Season, Players' Player of the Season, and Top Goal Scorer awards.

However, he has only managed only 13 appearances in all competitions since joining the Turkish side. 

Along with Chiefs, Premiership giants Mamelodi Sundowns and Supersport United are said to be monitoring his situation closely.

Ndlanya feels newly-appointed Amakhosi coach Giovanni Solinas needs a competitive squad to help the club reclaim the glory days and is adamant Chiefs can be unstoppable if they have Manyama and Khama Billiat in their squad.

"No doubt, Manyama will be a good signing for the club. He is that kind of a player that Chiefs need," Ndlanya told Vodacom Soccer.

"They need as many good players as they can. The new coach needs quality players for him to compete in the new season.

"We know Lebo very well from his days at Supersport, Cape Town City. He scores goals and is a quality player; the club should go all out to get his signature.

"Last season I complained about players, but this time they are trying, but it's still not enough. The coach should be spoilt for choice."
