Arsenal and Tottenham target Papiss Demba Cisse is still intent on leaving Freiburg, but the Bundesliga outfit are not prepared to sell the striker just yet.
The 26-year-old netted 22 times in 32 league appearances last season, and has so far found the net on seven occasions this term.
This fine form has alerted some of the most prominent clubs in the Barclays Premier League, with Arsenal and Spurs both frequently credited with interest in the Senegal international.
The north London duo were both linked with Cisse during the summer, as both Arsene Wenger and Harry Redknapp scoured the market for goalscoring reinforcements.
However, Arsenal opted to sign Ju-Young Park, and Emmanuel Adebayor joined Spurs on loan from Manchester City.
Cisse, meanwhile, signed a new deal with Freiburg, but with the promise that he could leave the badenova-Stadion at the end of the campaign.
And Freiburg general manager Dirk Dufner says the former Metz hotshot still wants to leave.
"Papiss Demba Cisse is a key player of our club. He is staying firm on his wish to move to a bigger club. This is his desire," Dufner told kicker-Sportmagazin.
"The ideal for us is that he is seeing out the current campaign with our club. At this moment we have not been received any offers."
Along with Arsenal and Spurs, Newcastle have also been linked with Cisse
