Dortmund's Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Borussia Dortmund's sporting director Michael Zorc said on Monday that the team's Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will not join Premier League giants Arsenal this season insisting that the international striker is not for sale.
The 26-year-old was strongly linked to Arsenal after his 26 goals with Dortmund in the Bundesliga this season.
It was reported that Arsenal made a £28.7million to Dortmund but the latter turned down the offer.
"We rely heavily on Aubameyang - that is no secret," Zorc told German magazine Kicker on Monday.
"I've heard a lot about this [a transfer to Arsenal] but I can say very clearly that it is blocked for him. He is simply not for sale."
The former Saint Etienne striker has three years remaining on his contract with Dortmund.
