Galatasaray have added Manchester City trio Gael Clichy, Joleon Lescott and Kolo Toure to their summer transfer wishlist alongside Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben according to the Daily Mail.

The ambitious Turkish side are keen to build-up a squad to compete with the European elite after they captured both Didier Drogba and Wesley Sneijder in the January transfer window.

Clichy still has two-years left on his City contract after his £7 million move from Arsenal in 2011 and he is reported to be very happy at the Etihad, but the Turkish side will still make a formal bid in the summer in hope that they can persuade the English side to sell.

They are also apparently interested in City centre-back's Joleon Lescott and Kolo Toure, both are expected to leave in the summer. However it is thought that they both want to remain in the Premier League.

Kolo Toure is out of contract in the summer and has attracted interest from the soon-to-be Ligue 1 club Monaco whilst Lescott is reportedly keen to stay in the Premier League.

As for Robben, it came out last week that new Munich boss Pep Guardiola is not a fan of the Dutch winger and he is looking to sell the player so that he can make way for more of his own players.

The former-Barcelona boss is keen to make his stamp on the Bayern Munich squad and believes Robben to be surplus to requirements.

Galatasaray are ready to bid up to £12million for Robben and they are hopeful that that offer will be enough to make Guardiola accept.
