Bundesliga Transfer Rumors: Papiss Demba Cisse to Blackburn Rovers?

SC Freiburg star forward Papiss Demba Cisse could be on his way to the English Premier League. The Mirror is reporting that Blackburn Rovers manager Steven Kean is prepared to make a £12 million offer for his services. The rumored transfer fee would break Blackburn's previous transfer fee of £8m in 2001 to Manchester United for Andrew Cole.

The Senegalese forward scored 22 goals this past season with Freiburg. He finished second in the golden boot race. His 22 goals were the most ever by an African player breaking Ghana's Tony Yeboah's record of 20 goals scored for Eintracht Frankfurt in 1993.

His strike rate for Senegal has been great. In a total of nine appearances he has scored seven goals. This includes a hat trick in a recent 2012 Africa Cup of Nations match against the island nation of Mauritius.

Cisse, 26, has also been linked with a move to VFL Wolfsburg and Dynamo Kyiv.
