Dortmund captain hopes Aubameyang rejects CSL

‘Nobody has hit better than me this week’ – Koepka on his ball-striking during third round

Borussia Dortmund skipper Marcel Schmelzer hopes Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pledges his future to the Bundesliga club, ahead of the Chinese Super League transfer deadline.

Aubameyang has been strongly linked with a move to China, with Tianjin Quanjian reportedly holding talks with Dortmund over a move for the 28-year-old.

Reports in the UK have also indicated that Aubameyang has been offered to Premier League champions Chelsea in a £70million deal.

The CSL transfer window shuts on Friday and Schmelzer hopes there’s no movement from Aubameyang after the Gabon international netted 31 goals for the Bundesliga giants last season.

"Of course, we'd be happy if Auba stayed," said Schmelzer.

"We know how important he is. He didn't win the top-scorer award for nothing.

"We'll find out in the next few days whether he will stay because the transfer window in China will close soon."
