“The 22 goals star is not for sale” – Bundesliga giants warn Liverpool

German giants Borussia Dortmund have issued a clear warning to the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea by stating: “Pierre Emerick Aubameyang is not for sale.”

Gabon international forward has been heavily linked with a move to top Premier League clubs.

Dortmund’s chief executive Hans Joachim Watzke told The Sun that they will not sell the Bundesliga hot-shot who’s netted 22 goals this season.

Aubameyang, who was named African Player of the Year for 2015, is just one strike behind Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski in the charts and has attracted strong interest from the Premier League’s big-hitters.

But Watzke said: “The position is clear. Auba plays for Borussia Dortmund and the next years he will play at Borussia Dortmund.

“It is no question. There is no get-out clause.

“Money is a thing that can solve all other things. But it’s not realistic.

“Clubs of the Premier League have a lot of money. But so much as to get Aubameyang? It’s a little bit difficult.

“It’s not question of money. We have money. We have no Sheikh. No Roman Abramovich.

“But we have money. We don’t need money. We need success in playing football.”

The 22-goal striker himself, when questioned about the a possible transfer last month, insisted he had no wish to leave Dortmund.
