Bayer Leverkusen want to sign Kevin de Bruyne from Chelsea, but Borussia Dortmund are also interested.

Chelsea midfielder Kevin de Bruyne is the subject of interest from both Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen, according to the latter's general manager.

The Belgian international has enjoyed a successful season at Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga and has caught the eye of both Dortmund and Leverkusen.

While the Blues are reported to have a deal in place to sign Leverkusen's Andre Schurrle, general manager Wolfgang Holzhauser wants to use the German as bait to sign De Bruyne.

"He still has a few talks to hold with Chelsea," Holzhauser told Kicker. "It looks like there is an offer from Dortmund to sign the player for a relatively high fee.

"According to our information, Chelsea don't want to sell him but just loan him out."

However, Leverkusen are yet to speak with De Bruyne to "find out if he actually wants to come to us and, if so, on what conditions."

De Bruyne has 11 caps for Belgium.
