The Ivory Coast international has scored 22 goals for Fred Rutten's side to help them up to fourth in the table just five points off leaders PSV Eindhoven.
His impressive performances for his club has led to speculation that the 24-year-old could exit Vitesse, with the Russian transfer window open until later today.
It was rumoured that Zenit St Petersburg, Anzhi Makhachkala and CSKA Moscow were interested, but Vitesse's interim director Erwin Kasakowski remains hopeful the striker will stay.
"He leaves every day after training. Then he goes home. The next day he comes back, also as one of the first," he said in Voetbal International.
"No, I do not think he leaves. Up to this moment we have received no serious offer.
"However, nothing is certain until the market is closed."
