Borussia Dortmund’s CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke says the club have received no bids for Chelsea and AC Milan target Pierre-Emerick Aubamyeang.

As reported by Football Italia, the Dortmund chief has admitted that he would be happy to see the forward stay at the club.

“We have not received any offers for the player, we will wait a few more days, but not for much longer than that. Personally, I’d be happy if Pierre were to remain.

“Obviously there are clubs in the world where Aubameyang could earn more than he does here.”

There had been interest from Chinese Super League clubs, but with the Chinese transfer window now shut, Aubameyang’s former side, AC Milan and Chelsea appear to be the front runners for the player’s signature.

The Gabon international is being valued at £70 million after enjoying a free-scoring season in the Bundesliga last campaign.

Aubameyang netted 40 times across all competitions last season for Dortmund, helping them lift the DFB Pokal Cup.

Chelsea are in desperate need of a striker for the new season as Diego Costa closes in on his exit from the club.

The Premier League champions will need to fork out a lot of money for either Andrea Belotti, Alvaro Morata or Aubameyang if reports are to be believed.
