Wigan Athletic have had a £5.5m bid for defender Robert Huth accepted by Chelsea, BBC Sport understands.
Huth has struggled for first-team football at Chelsea
The German centre-half, 21, is believed to be unhappy at his lack of first-team football at Stamford Bridge.
He wants his future to be resolved after the World Cup when he will have showdown talks with boss Jose Mourinho.
"I've not heard about Wigan's interest. All I know is that I am not happy at the moment. After the World Cup I will speak to Jose Mourinho," he said.
Huth is currently with the German national team preparing for the World Cup and was speaking from their training camp in Geneva.
He added: "Even a transfer to the Bundesliga is a possibility. It's all open. Nothing has been decided yet."
Wigan have also had an £8.5m bid accepted for Crystal Palace striker Andy Johnson and are vying with rivals Bolton and Everton for his services.
