Former Chelsea defender Michael Mancienne is making waves in Germany with Hamburg.

Mancienne is a shock target for mega-rich Anzhi Makhachkala, says the Mirror.

The defender left Chelsea two years ago to move to the Bundesliga and join ­Hamburg.

Mancienne has since ­impressed in Germany and Anzhi, who are still looking to replace Christopher Samba after he joined QPR, are considering a move for the 25-year-old.
