Trabzonspor sporting director Suleyman Hurma recently told NTV Spor that the club are interested in the Senegal international.
“We have made our offer and will wait for a response now, it is normal for other clubs to also be interested,” Hurma was quoted as saying.
The Mirror report that Premier League outfit Sunderland are also interested in the 27-year-old defender.
The article states that the 27-year-old defender wants to play in the Premier League and that West Brom are also interested.
“Papy has been doing wonders in France and he now he wants to try his luck in England,” said Djilobodji’s UK representative Chris Nathaniel.
“He is now looking for a new challenge and he feels the Premier League is the place for him to do that.”
