Blackburn bid for Freiburg striker Cisse

Blackburn Rovers have made a bid for prolific Freiburg striker Papiss Demba Cisse, the Bundesliga club have confirmed.

Cisse, 25, has set the German top flight alight in his first full season with Freiburg, netting 24 goals in 32 games in all competitions to help the club to seventh place in the Bundelsiga standings.

"I can confirm that Blackburn have made us an offer," Freiburg sporting director Dirk Dufner told Kicker.

Dufner also revealed that Arsenal and Liverpool had shown an interest in Cisse, who is under contract until 2014.

The Senegal international is thought to be valued at at least €15 million by Freiburg, who stand to make a tidy profit on a player who cost them just €1.5 million from French second division side Metz last January.

Cisse last week expressed his happiness with life in the South West of Germany in the face of speculation about interest from the Premier League.

"Everyone is talking about me leaving the club," he told broadcaster Sudwestrundfunk, "but I have not received any concrete offers from another club.

"And as long as I do not receive anything like that, I am to stay on at Freiburg for sure. I enjoy being at this club, it is very tough to find a similar club.''

Blackburn are desperately searching for a prolific forward having seen Jason Roberts, Nikola Kalinic, Junior Hoilett, Benjani and Roque Santa Cruz muster just 15 goals between them this season.

Despite not having scored since February, Kalinic remains Rovers' leading scorer with five goals, while centre-back Chris Samba is the club's second highest scorer with four.
