Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has said Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will stay at the club if Arsenal do not meet their transfer demands.

The Gabon worldwide was dropped for Dortmund's Bundesliga draws at Wolfsburg, then last Friday in Berlin in the wake of the speculation.

"So far Arsenal have tried and we've rejected everything".

Arsenal have already failed with a £50 million bid for the striker, with Dortmund hoping to receive a fee in the region of £65 million.

Aubameyang was restored to Dortmund's team for the side's league game against Freiburg today having been dropped for the last two matches due to poor discipline.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that the two clubs are in discussions over the Gabon global.

Meanwhile, the would-be space voyager will assume duties at the Astronaut Office at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. Friday, Dean confirmed that Epps had returned to the active astronaut corps and would still be considered for future missions.

Dortmund, sixth in Germany's top flight, reportedly want 70 million for Aubameyang, who has a Borussia deal until 2021.

Landing Aubameyang would rate as a coup for Arsenal, particularly after seeing attacking talisman Alexis Sanchez join Premier League rivals Manchester United earlier in January.

According to UK Sun, Wenger said, "I have a consistent dialogue with Giroud and he can only leave if someone else comes into the club". We will try but we are not close to signing anybody'.

Arsenal are the team most often linked with the prolific 28-year-old but have found negotiations tough. "Arsenal had started several attempts that we have declined, so I can not say how it will end at the moment".

Sky Sports News reported on Thursday that Olivier Giroud would not be moving to Dortmund as part of the potential Aubameyang deal, despite reports he may move on loan to the Westfalenstadion. However the 31-year-old made a decision to stay and fight for his place at the Emirates, despite the arrival of club record signing, Alexandre Lacazette.

"I know him very well, he's a good friend of mine", he told Eurosport, as quoted by the Mirror.
