Bayern Munich have confirmed their interest in signing Chelsea full-back Jose Bosingwa.
The Portugal right-back has only been at Stamford Bridge for one season following a £16million move from FC Porto last summer.
Bosingwa made 48 appearances in all competitions and was a key member of the squad under both Luiz Felipe Scolari and Guus Hiddink.
But Bayern believe they can persuade Chelsea to part company with their first-choice right-back.
"Our transfer activities are basically closed," said general manager Uli Hoeness.
"We are only looking at whether there are possibilities for the right-back position.
"We are interested in Bosingwa. That's correct."
