Aubameyang "totally excludes" move to Chinese Super League.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang believes he has to seal a move away from Borussia Dortmund in order to reach another level.
The Gabon international, who sealed a move from Saint-Etienne back in 2013, has scored 100 goals for the Black and Yellow army and has been constantly linked with Real Madrid and Manchester City.
"I am thinking about a departure next summer," Aubameyang told RMC. "I feel very good here [at Dortmund] because the supporters are great.
"It is still a big club. But I ask myself, if I want to reach a new level, should I not leave? I have no response, it takes a little time.
"If I want to reach another level, inevitably, I must leave this summer. Is it worth it or not? We have to see what the proposals are.

"If I do not move, it means I will finish my career here. I'll take time to think."
On the potential of a move to Madrid, he replied: "We're dropping Madrid, there was too much noise around it. And there is not only Real in life, even if it's still a dream."
Aubameyang continued: "Many people would like to see me in England," he said. "It is not the championship that attracts me the most. But it could allow me to take a step. I love the Spanish championship. LaLiga attracts me a lot.
"The French championship is in full progression, it is really nice to see. I know the championship well. This is my first language, it can attract. It might not be my first option but [a return] is not inconceivable."
On a big-money move to the Chinese Super League, Aubameyang said: "It is not a goal to go there. Especially now, I totally exclude that for now."
