BV Borussia Dortmund have moved to reinforce their attack with the signing of Poland striker Robert Lewandowski from Lech Poznań for an undisclosed fee, reported to be around €4m.
The 21-year-old has signed a four-year contract with the Bundesliga club, who will take part in next season's UEFA Europa League play-offs. Lewandowski proved a hit in his two seasons at Lech, helping the side to the Polish Cup in 2009 before following it up with the league title this season – when he was the division's top scorer with 18 goals.
The former Znicz Pruszków player, widely regarded as the most talented player in the Ekstraklasa, has also struck six times in 22 international appearances and Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc said: "We are pleased to have reached an agreement to sign Robert after some tough but fair negotiations. He will provide us with more attacking options for the coming season."
