Borussia Dortmund signs Serie A top scorer Ciro Immobile on 5-year deal

  • Print

DORTMUND, Germany - Borussia Dortmund has signed Italy striker Ciro Immobile, a move that should help fill the void of the departing Robert Lewandowski.

Immobile led Serie A in scoring this past season with 22 goals for Torino and is part of the Italy squad for the upcoming World Cup.

Dortmund announced the signing on its website Monday, saying the 24-year-old Immobile signed a five-year deal effective from July 1. It did not disclose financial details.

German media suggested Dortmund was paying around 18.5 million euros ($25 million) for Immobile. His previous contract was split between Torino and Juventus.

Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc said "we are getting a versatile and dynamic striker who has established himself in a top European league in an impressive manner."

Lewandowski is joining Bundesliga winner Bayern Munich next season.
