Dortmund Sign Lewandowski Replacement

Borussia Dortmund have confirmed the signing of Hertha Berlin forward, Adrian Ramos, on a four-year contract.

The Colombian will join Jurgen Klopp’s side for €9m (R130 million) in the summer and has been signed to replace Robert Lewandowski, who will join Bayern Munich on a free transfer after the season.

"Adrian Ramos is an excellent footballer and one of the top scorers in Germany", sporting director, Michael Zorc, said in a statement.

"He fits Borussia Dortmund's requirements perfectly."

Ramos joined Hertha Berlin in 2009 and has scored 32 goals in 89 appearances in the Bundesliga for the club. This season, the Colombian is the league’s third best striker and only one goal behind Mario Mandzukic and Lewandowski, who both have scored 17 goals.

The 28-year-old has assisted seven more goals for his team mates, which means he has been involved in 62 percent of Berlin’s goals.

Zorc, however, also confirmed that the club is still in the market for a second striker, with names such as Edin Dzeko, Jackson Martinez and Christian Benteke linked to the club.

“We will sign two strikers this summer,” Zorc added.

The task to replace Robert Lewandowski, who has developed into a world class striker under Klopp, won’t be easy for Ramos and the possible second signing.

The Poland international has scored 71 times in 125 appearances for Dortmund, and impressive 17 goals in 28 Champions Leaguegames.
