Papiss Cisse: To Russia with love?

Papiss Cisse knocked out Anzhi, with a last minute goal in the Europa League. - Stu Forster

Papiss Cisse could be on the move.

Newcastle United's Senegalese hitman Papiss Cisse has been linked with a move to moneybags, Anzhi Makhachkala according to Russia's leading sports daily. The report claims Anzhi are willing to offer €18m for Cisse. Assuming you can't read Russian, translating the article should confirm the finer details.

Anzhi Makhachkala are the team that, incidentally Newcastle beat in the Europa League last season to reach the quarter finals, and to add to that, it was Cisse himself who notched the last minute winner. Anzhi have become know as Russia's biggest spenders in recent years having already splashed out on, Samuel Eto'o, Willian and Yuri Zhirkov to name a few.

It is unlikely Newcastle would want to sell their only out and out striker without finding a replacement, but could the offer which is around £15m convince Mike Ashley to sell up, and reinvest the funds on a new striker? And would you sell Papiss Cisse at that price, bearing in mind it leaves Shola Ameobi as the clubs only fully fledged frontman?
