Hamilton is under contract with Mercedes until he end of the 2020 season.
But there have been strong suggestions the Brit could finish his illustrious career in the famous red of Ferrari.
That would likely leave four-time world champion Vettel without a seat.
However, Wolff would be open to letting the German drive for the Silver Arrows.
“Sebastian is someone for whom I have huge respect as a driver and a person. Who knows what the future holds,” Wolff told Bild.
“We are a German company, Germany is our home market and the home of the brand.
“At some point in Formula 1, we made the decision to put the best possible drivers in the car, uncompromisingly.
“But if a German driver is at that level and available, that would be nice.”
In a separate interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, Wolff revealed he has spoken to Hamilton about a potential move to Ferrari.
“We talked openly about it when we signed the last contract,” he said.
“Ferrari is the most prestigious brand in F1, and every driver dreams of winning a championship with them.
“I understand that perfectly.
“On the other hand, Mercedes has a great story and we have renewed the glories of the past, which is something Lewis is proud of.
“Nobody knows the future.
“Personally I hope he finishes his career by winning more titles with us, but I know that everyone has the desire to wear red.”
