Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, one of the most sought-after strikers in world football, has put a host of major European clubs on red-alert after failing to commit to Borussia Dortmund.
When asked whether he will be at the German side beyond the current campaign, the 27-year-old declined to offer any guarantees over his future, indicating that he may be open to a move elsewhere.

“I don’t know if I will stay”, the forward told Fussball News.
“I just think about playing good football right now. I want to give my best and win titles. I just think about the sport and nothing else.”
Aubameyang has long been linked with a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid and back in March revealed that he would welcome a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, in order to fulfil a promise he made to his grandfather.
“Real Madrid? There is no agreement but I promised my grandfather I would play there one day,” he said at the time.
“Why wouldn’t I want to discover new things? As I’ve said several times, I’d like to play in Spain and have good weather for once in my life!”
Since joining from Saint-Etienne in 2013, Aubemayang has developed into one of the most-lethal forwards in Europe, renowned for his searing pace and prolific finishing.
The former AC Milan youth team player scored twice during their 4-1 win over Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday, taking his tally to 18 goals scored in just 18 appearances so far this season.
Despite his goals, Dortmund remain in sixth place in the German Bundesliga, nine points behind leaders Red Bull Leipzig.
