DR Congo football chiefs admit they're in contact with Manchester United fullback Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Wan-Bissaka missed England's Euro 2020 qualifiers against Kosovo and Bulgaria through injury and has not been selected since then.
The defender also qualifies for DR Congo.
Assistant coach Christopher Oualembo said: "We have been making approaches to Wan-Bissaka for quite some time now.
"Our most recent contacts with him were just earlier this week.
"In these situations it isn't always the youngsters who make the decisions, especially at his age.
"However the points that have emerged from our discussions are that we may need a bit of patience - but we can have plenty of hope."
A member of DR Congo's coaching staff also revealed that ex-Newcastle star Lomana LuaLua has been tasked with urging Wan-Bissaka to opt for the Leopards, reports The Sun.
