Zieler joined Hannover in 2010 from Manchester United and he currently has two years left to run on his contract with the Bundesliga club.
However, he has a release clause which is active during each transfer window and reports in Germany claim the figure is in the region of €7million (£5.9m).
The 24-year-old was linked with a move to Liverpool during the summer before the Premier League club signed Simon Mignolet from Sunderland.
A new deal is now in the pipeline and Hannover's general manager Dirk Dufner expressed his concern about the clause in Zieler's present contract.
"We are keen on signing a new contract with Ron-Robert Zieler," Dufner told Sport-BILD weekly.
"No club in this business is happy to have players under contract that are based on release clauses. Of course, we are also not happy about such circumstances."
