Borussia Dortmund striker Adrian Ramos has been linked with various moves away from Signal Iduna Park during this transfer window.
The Colombian has drawn interest from three clubs from around the world during this transfer window, namely Aston Villa, Mainz 05, and BJ Guoan in the Chinese Super League.
BJ Guoan expressed a great deal of interest in Ramos, offering him a contract of seven million euros. Ramos refused to accept because he wanted to stay in Europe and was looking to the Premier League for options.
