Borussia Dortmund chief Michael Zorc says they remain keen on Chelsea winger Kevin de Bruyne.
BVB see De Bruyne as a readymade replacement for new Bayern Munich signing Mario Gotze.
"The player likes us," insisted Zorc.
"But it's an issue which is out of our hands."
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho doesn't want to make a decision over De Bruyne until he's seen the Belgian in preseason.
