Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has claimed that striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang "will stay" at the club this summer, despite rumoured interest from abroad.
The Gabon international has netted 120 goals in 189 appearances for the German outfit since joining from Saint-Etienne in 2013, making him one of the most sought-after players in world football.
Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan have both been linked with the 28-year-old, who finished top of the scoring charts in the Bundesliga last season, while Chinese moneybags Tianjin Quanjian are also said to be keen.
Dortmund want to put an end to the speculation, however, as the start of the new season - beginning with a DFL-Supercup clash against Bayern Munich on August 5 - is now less than a month away.
"For now, we assume that Aubameyang will stay," he told WAZ. "We arranged with him that we are open for talks but only until a certain point of time."
Aubameyang scored 31 goals during last season's German top-flight campaign to help Dortmund to third place in the table.
