Ciro Immobile is hoping his loan switch to Sevilla will turn into a permanent move.
The Italy international scored 22 Serie A goals for Torino in 2013-14, form that earned him a transfer to Borussia Dortmund, who were attempting to replace Robert Lewandowski after his transfer to Bayern Munich.
But Immobile failed to fire in the Bundesliga, making just nine league starts and scoring three times in 2014-15.
Immobile’s season-long loan move was announced on Sunday before being officially presented as a Sevilla player 24 hours later.
“For me it is an important year, because last year was not good,” Immobile said.
“It is beautiful to play in the Champions League and a new championship, I hope to do well.
“I am very happy because Sevilla are an important team. First I talked with [director of football] Monchi, who told me this is like a family, and for me it is very important this year to become part of this family after a negative year.
“Thanks to the president and Monchi who helped me come here.
“I’d like to be a few years at Sevilla, I hope to find a family in this team.”
