OFFICIAL: Borussia Dortmund Sign Lucas Barrios From Colo Colo

The prolific hitman will ply his trade in the Bundesliga this term...
Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund have completed the transfer of prolific striker Lucas Barrios from Colo Colo for € 4.4 million. The 24-year-old has signed a four-year deal at his new club.

Dortmund were keen to land a new attacker after the departure of Swiss forward Alexander Frei earlier this month. Frei opted to leave BVB in order to join Swiss outfit Basel.

Barrios joined Colo Colo from Mexican side Atlas in 2008 and immediately developed in to an important first team member at the Chilean side. The world’s leading scorer in 2008 scored 37 goals last season.

The 24-year-old Barrios had attracted the interest of a whole number of European teams with his impressive performances and was also being linked with Hertha and Werder Bremen.
