Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has insisted that striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will not be leaving the club this summer despite major interest in the player's signature, reports the Daily Mail.
Watzke has confirmed that the talented forward will remain with the club for the upcoming season after the likes of Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain were credited with interest in the player's services.
Aubameyang has enjoyed a successful period with the German outfit in recent time, having found the back of the net on 16 occasions in the Bundesliga last term.

It's not entirely surprising, then, that the likes of Arsenal and Co. have been linked with a move for the forward, but it appears that he isn't going anywhere.
Watzke, speaking to Bild am Sonntag, stated: "Aubameyang stays with us this season. He's not for sale!"
Arsenal in need
In truth, missing out on Aubameyang isn't exactly a disaster for Wenger and Co. at the Emirates. At the end of the day, the forward is 26 now and has yet to really prove himself as one of the leading forwards in world football.
Ok, he'd certainly make a decent signing for the likes of the Gunners, but is he really an upgrade on Frenchman Olivier Giroud?
Arsenal could probably do with adding to their striker ranks before the start of the new campaign, but perhaps Wenger should concentrate on signing an elite forward, who would help the club overhaul Chelsea at the top of the Premier League table.
