Immobile set to stay at Dortmund

The Italy international endured a difficult debut season in Germany and is a reported target of Serie A clubs Napoli and Fiorentina.

Immobile’s agent Marco Sommella said to the Italian press: “I believe Borussia Dortmund have taken Ciro off the market.”

Immobile, the top scorer in Serie A in the 2013-14 campaign, joined Borussia from Torino last summer but made just nine Bundesliga starts and scored thee goals.

The 25-year-old is under contract with Borussia until June 2019.

The arrival of coach Thomas Tuchel as a replacement for Jurgen Klopp could see Immobile earn more playing time at Dortmund.

Klopp stepped down after seven years at the helm of Borussia this summer.
