Reports: Borussia Dortmund closing in on signing Ciro Immobile

Valerio Pennicino

It seemed like only a matter of time before the Ciro Immobile negotiation triangle agreed to what was seemingly bound to happen. Borussia Dortmund wanted the 24-year-old Sere A scoring champ, and Juventus/Torino would only be willing to let him go for a satisfying price.

After weeks of negotiating, it seems as though that price has been met and young Ciro may be on a flight to Germany in the very, very near future.

Here's what Gianluca Di Marzio has to say regarding the matter:

Immobile is about to join Borussia Dortmund. The German club raised its offer to €19,5 million. The clubs are now exchanging the documents. The signature will arrive in the weekend when Immobile will fly to Germany with his agent Marco Sommella. He will ink a five-year contract. He will earn two million per season, almost three thanks to some bonuses. Everything is ready for his transfer.

And further confirmation...

When it comes to Immobile moving to Dortmund, it definitely seemed like it wasn't a matter of if the deal would get done, it was just a matter of when all three clubs would meet an agreement. Immobile, who scored 22 goals with Torino this past season, has basically been Dortmund's No. 1 priority over the past number of months.

Or at least that's the way it has looked from afar. They've made it no secret that they want to sign Immobile and bring him to Germany. Even as his price clearly went higher and higher with every goal that he scored for Torino, Dortmund didn't waver in their pursuit of Immobile. Heck, as he shot up the scoring leaders list, the Dortmund management only became that much more interested in the former Juve youth product.

Now, as the reports come out of Italy saying that the deal is just about done and Immobile will be in Germany soon to sign his contract, Dortmund is about to get their guy for a price that is satisfactory to all parties involved.

And in return, Juventus and Torino are going to get a nice chunk of cash for it.

So, about that new-found cash and how to spend it...
