Borussia Dortmund have signed Germany international winger Andre Schurrle from Wolfsburg on a five-year deal, the two Bundesliga clubs announced on Friday.

Reports in Germany indicate Dortmund will pay around 30 million euros ($33 million) for the World Cup winner, which would make Schurrle the club’s record signing.

“He has already amassed considerable international experience. His quality will be of great value for our team,” said Dortmund’s sporting director Michael Zorc.

Schurrle, 25, has played 55 times for his country and becomes Dortmund’s second major signing in as many days after Mario Goetze returned to his former club on Thursday following a frustrating three-year spell at Bayern Munich.

Schurrle, who has scored 48 goals in 174 Bundesliga games, spent the past 18 months at Wolfsburg after he joined them from Chelsea in February 2014 for 32 million euros.

He is Dortmund’s eighth signing this close season as Thomas Tuchel looks to reinforce his side following the departures of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Ilkay Gundogan and Mats Hummels.
