Dortmund Deny Contact With Arsenal For Aubameyang

But initially it seemed as though Aubameyang would be given yet another chance to play his way back into good favour, with Dortmund fourth in the table and anxious not to miss out on the Champions League places.

Borussia Dortmund have responded to rumours that striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could join Arsenal in the January transfer window.

Aubameyang is widely regarded as one of European football's top talents and he has scored 13 goals and made three assists in 15 Bundesliga games for Dortmund so far this season.

"We consider it disrespectful to speak about players from other clubs", Zorc said.

Arsenal are said to have stepped-up their pursuit of the player after receiving assurances from Sven Mislintat, Arsenal's new head of recruitment who previously worked for Dortmund, about Aubameyang's attitude. There is no contact with Arsenal, said Zorc.

"Aubameyang's disruptive reputation set off some alarm bells inside the Emirates, but it is understood Mislintat, who worked as a scout at Dortmund for 10 years, has given the Gabon worldwide a positive character reference", Matt Law said in his report for the Telegraph. The team failed to score without him when they were held to a 0-0 home draw by Wolfsburg on Sunday. We played many times against him when he was at Dortmund.

Dortmund coach Peter Stoeger on Thursday indicated the 28-year-old would be in the squad but the forward was surprisingly left out with club officials saying he was not focussed enough.

Shinji Kagawa salvaged a 1-1 draw at Hertha Berlin when he capitalized on a rare defensive lapse from the otherwise well-organized home side with 20 minutes remaining. Right now I have the impression that everything's OK.

"I think footballers are very privileged, all the more if you see how hard many people have to work for their salary". We don't have talks every day.

"I think that any future club should think twice about taking on a player like that and I can honestly say, I would reject such a player. Aubameyang brings his qualities".
