The former Germany U21 international is under contract at his present club until June 2018, where he is in his fourth year as the regular first-team goalkeeper.
Despite being linked to Milan, Baumann is concentrating solely on putting in top performances for Freiburg, who are in a battle to avoid dropping out of the German top flight.
The 23-year-old feels a debt of loyalty to the club whom he initially joined at the age of ten and has progressed all the way through its youth ranks to the senior side.
He told Sport-BILD: "I am not concerned about how things might go on for me at the end of the season.
"I am fully focused on SC Freiburg. This is something I am doing intentionally and it's something I owe to this club - I have played for this club since I joined its U11 side."
