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

Dortmund coach, Jurgen Klopp, added: "He can, will and must still improve in many areas and we want to help him,.

"He has chosen us over many other clubs and is thrilled at Borussia Dortmund.

"He is a real powerhouse that has played in all positions and...he is used to operating with high intensity without losing any of his scoring prowess." 

Immobile comes as the replacement for leaving Robert Lewandowski and believes he can improve further at Dortmund, adding his excitement at playing in the Bundesliga.
