Ciro Immobile warned he “might not stay at Borussia Dortmund” ahead of Euro 2016, praising Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri.

The striker was a sensation at Torino and won the Capocannoniere title, but has struggled in Germany.

“It is only normal that I am pleased to be linked with so many clubs, and being Italian I do miss home,” said Immobile in a Press conference while on international duty.

Ciro Immobile warned he “might not stay at Borussia Dortmund” ahead of Euro 2016, praising Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri.

The striker was a sensation at Torino and won the Capocannoniere title, but has struggled in Germany.

“It is only normal that I am pleased to be linked with so many clubs, and being Italian I do miss home,” said Immobile in a Press conference while on international duty.

“I have a very important decision to make. There is the European Championship and I need a season like the one I had at Toro, to be a protagonist.

“There’s no reason to say I can’t do that at Dortmund, especially now that we have changed Coach, but I might not stay at Borussia Dortmund.”

Napoli seem to be the favourites under new Coach Sarri, especially as it is his hometown club, but Fiorentina are also an option.

“Aside from Juventus, the team that played the best football in Serie A was Sarri’s Empoli. He made them play the beautiful game, both in movement and on set plays. He is a well-prepared Coach and Napoli made the right decision hiring him.”

Immobile added another comment that showed he is planning the transfer strategy carefully.

“Italian teams begin pre-season training around July 10, while Dortmund start on June 29. The new Coach will have two or three weeks to get to know me. I want to see how things go there first.

“My main problem this season was that the team did not play like Borussia Dortmund, the side we all knew. Previously they had 50 scoring opportunities per game, yet this time struggled to get the ball into the box.

“It was difficult for those who had been there for four or five years, let alone someone like me who had just arrived. I played more at the start, then the Coach opted to keep just (Pierre-Emerick) Aubameyang in attack and results improved, so I was left out.

“I know that it was not only my fault and I don’t like to leave, or stay, as a loser. I want to leave a good memory. This is why I’m thinking about whether to stay or go.”
