A prolific spell for Torino in 2013/14 not only won Immobile a Capocannoniere award, but stirred interest across Europe.

Borussia Dortmund eventually signed him for €18.5m in the summer of 2014 as a replacement for the Bayern Munich-bound Robert Lewandowski. However, he failed to impress in Germany.

Struggles to adapt to Jurgen Klopp’s system led Immobile to score only three goals. A move to Sevilla ended on a similar note, with the only highly rated striker scoring just four times.

But a return to Italy has restored Immobile’s reputation, with the 30-year-old thriving for a Lazio team that’s built around his strengths.

A third Capocannoniere award and a first Serie A title could be next up in this footballer’s career.
