OFFICIAL: Adrian Ramos to Join Borussia Dortmund in the Summer
German giants Borussia Dortmund have announced the pre-signing of Hertha Berlin striker and Colombia international Adrian Ramos, who is set to join Der BVB in the summer.
Adrian Ramos will be joining Dortmund on the first of July. His contract is set to run until 2018.
Dortmund will hope Adrian Ramos can reinforce their striking option come the next season as they prepare themselves for the departure of contract-rebel Robert Lewandowski at the end of the season to join fierce rivals Bayern Munich.
Dortmund and Hertha Berlin have both agreed not to disclose the transfer fee for the services of Ramos, but Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc believes Ramos will be a worthy investment.
“Adrian Ramos is an excellent footballer and one of the top strikers in Germany. He fits perfectly the profile of player we want at Borussia Dortmund,” Zorc told Borussia Dortmund’s official website.
Ramos, 28, is in blistering form this season for Hertha Berlin, having scored 16 goals and assisted in seven more in his 29 league matches for the club.
He is also an established Colombian international, having made 23 appearances for his country so far, scoring two goals along the way.
