Dortmund complete Immobile signing

2 June 2014 19:21

Borussia Dortmund have completed the signing of Torino striker Ciro Immobile on a five-year deal.

The Italy international, part of his nation's FIFA World Cup squad, topped the Serie A scoring charts last season with 22 goals in 33 league outings.

Immobile will now be tasked with helping to cover the absence of Bayern Munich-bound Robert Lewandowski.

"Borussia Dortmund are a huge club and the idea of replacing Lewandowski really appeals to me," Immobile told a press conference.

"I've spoken to (Italy team-mates Luca) Caldirola and (Giulio) Donati and they've told me that the Bundesliga's a fantastic league – one of the best in the world."

With Dortmund having already agreed a deal to bring in Adrian Ramos from Hertha Berlin, sporting director Michael Zorc feels Immobile is the ideal signing for Jurgen Klopp's side.

"In Ciro Immobile we get a flexible and dynamic attacker who has established himself in an impressive way in a top European league," Zorc told the club's official website.

"His outstanding qualities fit perfectly with the profile required by Borussia Dortmund.

Immobile will link up with his new club from July 1, with the details of his transfer left undisclosed.
