Blackburn must smash wage ceiling to land Freiburg star Cisse

Blackburn Rovers must smash their wage ceiling to land Freiburg striker Papiss Cisse.

The Mirror says Rovers will have to come up with a record £4million-a-year contract to sign Cisse.

Rovers are prepared to outbid Ukrainian giants Dynamo Kiev for the powerful hit man, but his personal terms have come as a shock to their negotiators.

Cisse, 26, is looking for a massive contract on around £75,000-a-week and claims to have had better offers from Kiev - with further interest in both Germany and Russia.

Freiburg will cash in on Cisse for the right price after a prolific season, but the main snag may be his salary. However Rovers are desperate to land a proven goalscorer and may push the boat out.
