CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has now revealed that the Bundesliga club is willing to let their star striker go, but only if they are able to get more than £63 million (R1 billion) for him. "This has not happened so far".
That date marks the official start of Dortmund's pre-season training camp in Switzerland and new manager Bosz wants a settled squad by that date and will not sanction a move for the striker beyond then, the report claims.
Chelsea meanwhile, are reportedly eyeing a move for Aubameyang in case their pursuit of Everton's Romelu Lukaku falls through.
The 28-year-old has managed a total of 189 appearances for the German giants in the four years he has been with them, scoring a resounding 120 goals.
He is now on holiday in the United States and met basketball legend Shaquille O'Neal - and he quickly shared a snap of the pair together via his Instagram account.
