Bayern Munich have claimed they are 'waiting for contact' from Chelsea over their bid to sign defender Jose Bosingwa.
The Bundesliga giants have been strongly linked with making a move for the Portugal international this summer.
But Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge recently admitted defeat in the club's pursuit of Bosingwa.
However, it appears the Germany club remain hopeful of landing his services as they look to bolster their options at right-back.
General manager Uli Hoeness is quoted by the Daily Mail as saying: "We are still interested in Jose.
"We need a strong, experienced defender on the right side, especially if we use (Franck) Ribery in a more offensive role, as is being considered.
"We want only Bosingwa and have no interest in any other player for this position.
"Chelsea agreed to give us a signal after the Community Shield that they were ready to talk and we are waiting for contact from them."
Bosingwa signed for Chelsea from Porto for around £16million last summer and shone during his debut season in the Premier League, making 34 starts.
