Hannover are trying to put together a deal to keep Ecuador international Edison Mendez in Germany.
The talented midfielder has impressed during the World Cup finals and could be offered the chance to stay in Germany after the close of the tournament.
Mendez has been the creative spark for the South Americans, who have qualified for the second round for the first time.
His displays have caught the eye of Bundesliga side Hannover and the club have been pestering the 27-year-old's agent Jonny Baez.
"Hannover call me continuously because of Edison Mendez," Baez told Bild.
The schemer currently plays for LDU Quito in his homeland, but could be tempted by a switch to Europe.
Last season, Hannover finished 12th in Die Bundesliga and are looking for reinforcements over the summer in a bid to press for European football.
