Aubameyang wasn’t keen on Premier League

Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says that he was happy to forego interest from the Premier League to remain in Germany.

The Gabon international was the Bundesliga’s top scorer last season and saw his name linked with numerous transfers, but was happy to stick with BVB.

“I was never tempted by the Premier League,” he said, via ESPN. “It’s simply a personal opinion.

“I’m very happy to have stayed at Dortmund because I realise that it’s my family. I feel very comfortable there and things have started well this season.”

Aubameyang was also linked with a move to the Chinese Super League, and did indeed have his head turned, but was not convinced the nascent league would be a good fit.

“Of course I thought about it,” he added. “I think that’s normal for me anyway. But it’s still lacking a bit of professionalism unfortunately so for the moment it’s been put to one side.”
