Rovers keen on taking Papiss

The Senegal international has scored 22 goals in this season’s

Bundesliga and has been linked with a host of clubs. Freiburg

sporting director Dirk Dufner told Kicker: “I can confirm that

Blackburn have made us an offer.” Arsenal and Liverpool are also

among the clubs linked with a move for the 25-year-old, who is

under contract until 2014. He last week expressed his happiness

with life in the south west of Germany, in the face of speculation

about a bid from the Reds. “Everyone is talking about me leaving

the club,” he told broadcaster Sudwestrundfunk at the time. “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.”
