Berlin:

Bundesliga club Freiburg confirmed on Monday they have been contacted by English Premier League club Blackburn with a view to the transfer of Senegalese international Papiss Cisse.

"I can confirm that Blackburn have made us an offer," Freiburg sporting director Dirk Dufner told the bi-weekly kicker without revealing the sum.

Dufner also revealed that Cisse, the second best scorer in the Bundesliga with 22 goals, had also been watched by Arsenal and Liverpool.

Freiburg, seventh in the Bundesliga, are demanding a minimum 15 million euro for the 25-year-old recruited in January 2010 from French second division side Metz for 1.5 million euro.
