Bundesliga star Papiss Demba Cisse would one day welcome a move to Liverpool but insists he is happy at Badenova-Stadion reports

The Freiburg striker has scored 16 goals so far this season, and has attracted attention from inside Germany as well as further afield.

Fulham and Birmingham were recently linked with a move for the player in the January transfer window, but Liverpool’s reported interest has captured Cisse’s imagination most of all.

The Senegalese international has admitted his admiration for Liverpool in a recent interview having followed the progress of two of his compatriots when they moved to Anfield back in 2002.


"Liverpool is a dream club. Salif Diao and El Hadji Diouf have played there. But to be honest I am happy here at the moment,” he said.

Despite the January signings of Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll, Liverpool are rumoured to be in the market for further striker reinforcements and Reds boss Kenny Dalglish has pinpointed Demba Cisse as a potential target.

Liverpool Director of Football Strategy Damien Comolli is constantly on the lookout for rising talent, and the 25-year-old’s recent form can’t have gone unnoticed.

Although reluctant to fully commit himself to a summer move, Cisse did leave speculation open to interpretation saying:

"I am delighted with my season so far. But you never know in football - things can develop quickly."

Valued at £12.5million, it will take another substantial bid from Liverpool owners to make the move happen.

But if recent activity in the transfer market is anything to go by then NESV will not be put off by the price tag so Demba Cisse could well be on his way to Anfield in the summer.
