Despite rumours linking him with various moves around the continent, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is set to remain with Borussia Dortmund.

The forward has hit the headlines for a fantastic goalscoring campaign, which has propelled BVB to within touching distance of Bayern Munich.

Superb season

Aubameyang, who has a contract running to 2020, has scored 22 goals in the Bundesliga this season.

In all competitions, the Gabonese striker has found the net 35 times in 40 games and added 11 assists.

Only Sven Bender has a deal that runs longer than Aubameyang's, with the defensive midfielder penning a new contract earlier this year.

With Dortmund still fighting on three fronts this term, he will be key to their chances of bringing some silverware to the Westfalenstadion come May.

They face Liverpool and former boss Jürgen Klopp in the Europa League quarter-finals, and a last four tussle with Hertha BSC in the DFB-Pokal is also in their sights.

The gap to Bayern Munich also sits at five points, in what has been a fantastic first season in charge for Thomas Tuchel.

"My family feels at home"

Speaking to kicker, Aubameyang told the German sports magazine: "Dortmund is a city which is totally crazy about football."

The quotes appeared on GOAL.com, and continued: "In the last years, we have the highest average attendance in Europe. The city is safe and my family feels at home."

Despite his willingness to remain in Dortmund, Aubameyang did explain that he has "never made a secret" of his desire to "someday" turn out for Real Madrid.

However, the forward said he "feel[s] very good here [in Dortmund]" and that he has not extended his contract at the club until 2020 "without a reason".
