Immobile wants Champions League

Ciro Immobile admits he finds the prospect of replacing Robert Lewandowski at Borussia Dortmund very exciting.

The 24-year-old won the Capocanniere award for being Serie A’s top scorer this season and has been heavily linked with a move to the German giants.

Speaking at a Press conference after completing an Italy training session this morning, the Torino man said he now wants to test himself in the Champions League.

“I am ambitious and, after such a good season, it’s normal to be aiming very high,” Immobile told the assembled media.

“I admit that I want to test myself in the Champions League now. Borussia Dortmund are a very important team and the idea of replacing Robert Lewandowski excites me very much.

“However, my agent is keeping his eye on things so we will see. I repeat, it is important for me to find a team in the Champions League, but I also need somewhere where I can grow personally.

“I talk a lot to the Torino President Cairo, our relationship is great. We both know what we want and I need new experiences. I want to play in the Champions League to show my quality.”
