By Yunis Dekow:
Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says he has no plans of leaving the club for Arsenal or Barcelona.
The Gabon international who was named the best the African player of the year by Confederation of African Football last week has scored 18 goals in 17 league matches and has been linked with top European teams.
Speaking to Sport Bild, the 26-year-old said: “I still want to achieve lots with Dortmund.
“I am here and nowhere else – not at Arsenal, not at Barcelona, not on the moon – you can see that.”
Aubameyang’s contract at Dortmand ends in 2020 and is yet to win any significant medal since leaving Sait-Ettiene in 2013.
The gunners were willing to pay substantial transfer fee to sign the striker but now such move appears implausible.
