Dortmund: Aubameyang not for sale


The Signal Iduna Park CEO has warned Arsenal and PSG that there is no way BVB will be cashing in on their star attacker

Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain have been warned off bidding for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang by Borussia Dortmund boss Hans-Joachim Watzke, who stressed the striker is not for sale.

The rapid attacker joined Signal Iduna Park from Saint-Etienne two years ago and was one of the positive aspects of BVB’s topsy-turvy 2014-15, scoring 25 goals in 46 appearances.

Aubameyang’s performances have roused interest from Premier League title fighters Arsenal and Ligue 1 champions PSG, both of whom are in the market for a new forward.

But Dortmund CEO Watzke claims new coach Thomas Tuchel will not be stripped of the versatile attacker, despite being without Champions League football for 2015-16.

“Aubameyang stays with us this season,” the club chief told Bild am Sonntag amid rumours that Arsenal are willing to bid €40 million. “He’s not for sale!”

The Gabon international is reportedly set to be offered a new contract – which currently runs out in 2018 – and will see his salary increased by €1m.

With Ciro Immobile loaned to Sevilla for the season, Dortmund are throwing their faith behind Aubameyang as their attacking star this coming campaign.
