The battle to keep Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at Borussia Dortmund is not Thomas Tuchel's immediate priority as the season nears its climax.

Thomas Tuchel is not concerned about the looming fight to keep hold of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as Borussia Dortmund prepare for a dramatic conclusion to the Bundesliga season.

Aubameyang has scored 27 goals in the league alone this campaign to cement his status as one of Europe's brightest attacking talents.

The Gabon international has publicly declared his desire to play for Real Madrid, while Ligue 1 heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with the 27-year-old, who is under contract until 2020.

Tuchel plays it cool

Addressing the media ahead of Saturday's crunch clash with fellow top-three hopefuls Hoffenheim, Tuchel claimed to be unperturbed over the future of the club's prized asset. 

"I am totally relaxed," he said.

"As far as I know, [Edinson] Cavani recently extended [his contract] with Paris. The demand on [acquiring a new striker] is therefore not so great. We still have three important weeks, so now is not the time to comment on rumours. We can do it in peace after the season."
