It does not look like Ciro Immobile is going back to Juventus. Borussia Dortmund look like the most interested party.
Who knows? He could even stay with Torino.
Juventus and Torino co-own the player. After scoring 22 goals to become the top scorer in Serie A, Immobile could be outgrowing his current environment.
At first, Immobile was hesitant. Back in April, he did not seem too keen to learn German. "It's difficult," he said, per journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.
That hasn't stopped Dortmund. Manager Jurgen Klopp told Tuttosport, via Football Italia, "We will do everything we can to bring Immobile here. The forwards that I want cost more because they are the best around."
But there is nothing concrete yet. Torino president Urbano Cairo keeps rejecting advances from Dortmund. Their initial offer for the player was €16 million, according to GianlucaDiMarzio.com. Dortmund could raise that bid to €18 million, but even that isn't enough, apparently.
No other meetings are scheduled. The situation is standing still.
