Elvis Kofi Okyere Wiafe Manu (born 13 August 1993) is a Dutch-born Ghanaian professional footballer who plays as a winger for Ludogorets Razgrad in the Bulgarian First League.
Manu has represented the Netherlands from the U16 through to the U21 age group. However, on 24 June 2015, he switched his national allegiance to Ghana, whom he qualifies for through his Ghanaian heritage.
After progressing through Feyenoord's youth academy, Manu signed a professional contract with the club in 2012. Manu made his professional debut for Feyenoord on 26 February 2012, in a 2–3 away defeat to PSV, coming on for Jerson Cabral in the 90th minute. He scored his first professional goal for the club in a 2–3 away victory to Heerenveen, in Feyenoord's final game of the 2011–12 season.
After making his first appearances for Feyenoord during the 2011–12 season, Manu was loaned out to Eerste Divisie side Excelsior at the start of the 2012–13 campaign, along with 4 other Feyenoord players.
After returning to Feyenoord at the beginning of 2013–14 season, Manu was loaned out once again on 9 January 2014, joining Eredivise side SC Cambuur until the end of the season.
After spending most of the previous two seasons out on loan, Manu broke into the Feyenoord first team during the 2014–15 season, becoming a regular for the club. Manu was on the bench in Feyenoord's first game of the 2014–15 season, a 1–2 defeat at home to Beşiktaş in the Champions League third qualifying round, Manu came on in the 65th minute for Wesley Verhoek to make his European debut. His first goal of the season came on 6 August 2014, on the return leg to Beşiktaş just seven days later, his goal came in the 74th minute, however he was unable to prevent Beşiktaş triumphing 5–2 on aggregate.
Feyenoord were thus knocked of the Champions League and demoted to the Europa League. In the Europa League play-off round, against Zorya Luhansk, Manu scored in the 90th minute to put Feyenoord 4–3 ahead and send them into the Europa League group stage for the first time in six years. Feyenoord went on to win their group, with Manu scoring in both of the matches against Standard Liège. In the knockout stages, Feyenoord faced Roma, with Manu scoring in the return leg, however Feyenoord lost 2–3 on aggregate. Manu went on to make 35 appearances and score 12 goals in all competitions for Feyenoord during the 2014–15 season.
On 29 August 2015, Manu joined Championship club Brighton & Hove Albion for an undisclosed fee. He made his Brighton debut in a 0–0 draw, away to Wolverhampton Wanderers on 19 September 2015, coming on at half-time for Tomer Hemed. He returned from his Huddersfield Town loan on 9 August 2016. In his first game for Brighton after the conclusion of his loan spell, Manu scored his first goal for the club in a 4–0 League Cup victory at home to Colchester United. Manu also scored for Brighton in his second appearance for the club in the 2016–17 season, a 2–4 League Cup victory over Oxford United.

On 31 December 2016, Manu joined Eredivisie side Go Ahead Eagles on loan for the remainder of the 2016–17 season. On 8 May 2017, Go Ahead Eagles announced that the club has decided to end the loan of Manu prematurely due to unprofessional behavior before the game with Ajax, which was lost by 4 – 0 the day before the announcement.
