Borussia Dortmund denied Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is set for a move to the Chinese Super League in January.
According to reports, Tianjin Quanjian – coached by Fabio Cannavaro – have agreed to a €70million deal to lure Aubameyang from the Bundesliga to China.
Aubameyang had been linked with the likes of Chelsea, AC Milan and teams in the CSL, though a transfer failed to materialise before a deadline imposed by Dortmund.
And Dortmund insist the 28-year-old forward will remain at Signal Iduna Park.
"We have no contact to a club regarding a transfer of Aubameyang, and consequently no club was talking about a change in January," Dortmund's director of communications Saschaa Fligge told Sky Sports.
Aubameyang ended 2016-17 as the Bundesliga's leading scorer with a stunning 31-goal haul.
The Gabon international scored twice in Dortmund's 3-1 International Champions Cup win against AC Milan on Monday.
