Aubameyang has captured the attention of several clubs around Europe in recent years, particularly after earning a move from St Etienne to Dortmund after his goal-scoring exploits in France.
Having already seen former boss Jurgen Klopp leave this summer, the German giants are keen to keep their squad together and their star striker is firmly on their agenda.
“I’ve heard a lot of rumours, but I have made it clear that he is in our long-term plans,” Zorc told Kicker.
It had been reported that the Gunners were preparing a huge bid of over £30m to sign the former Milan starlet, but it appears as though the 26-year-old is going nowhere this summer as Dortmund see him as a key part of their future plans.
The prolific ace has scored 30 goals in 67 appearances for Dortmund, while he has found the net on 16 occasions in 39 caps for Gabon as he continues to improve after a slow start to his career.
