Hannover general manager Jorg Schmadtke has confirmed his club want to sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder Markus Feulner.
The 29-year-old former Bayern Munich player has not yet been the subject of an official approach, but is out of the Dortmund first team and is thinking about moving.
With just 12 months remaining on Feulner's current Dortmund contract, the Bundesliga champions could decide to sell in order to receive some money.
Schmadtke told Ruhr Nachrichten newspaper: "We have not officially enquired, but it is true that we have been looking into his situation at Borussia Dortmund."
Feulner said: "I am not commenting on rumours. I am contracted to Borussia Dortmund.
"However, I did not play regular first-team football in the past two years. It is obvious I am thinking about moving on."
Meanwhile, Ivan Perisic of Club Brugge expects to join Dortmund this summer on a long-term contract after being crowned player of the season in Belgium.
The 22-year old Serbian midfielder said: "I already have a personal agreement about a five-year deal at Dortmund.
"It's a matter of days before a transfer will be official. Both clubs have to reach an agreement."
