Borusssia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has ruled out the possibility of signing Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata this summer.
Zorc insists Morata is too expensive for Dortmund.
“Of course, we have candidates in mind,” Zorc told Bild of replacing Aubameyang.
“But the position of a true centre-forward is currently the most difficult to fill in European football. That’s why we’ve resisted selling Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for a very long time because he guaranteed us goals.
“At the moment I have the impression that the transfer market – not only in the case of strikers – is a bit out of touch with the realities.
“Very high prices are called. We have to act with caution and not do crazy things. Especially as we have players in our squad who also have this position in their portfolio.
“I would say that Morata is too expensive – without knowing exact sums.”
