Steve Kean will launch a £12m offer for the Senegalese striker, currently playing for German club Freiburg.
Earlier this week Cisse was quoted as saying that he would welcome a move to England. “I am a big fan of the Premier League,” he said. “My friend, Demba Ba, has done well there. All players love the Premier League. One day I could be there, but there are also teams [in Germany] who want me, so you never know.”
The 26-year-old has scored 28 goals in 48 Bundesliga appearances for Freiburg.
