On 14 March 2009, Immobile made his Serie A debut in a 4–1 home win against Bologna, replacing Juventus' captain Alessandro Del Piero in the 89th minute, in a game where his youth system teammate Daud also made his Serie A debut, replacing Sebastian Giovinco a minute earlier. On 25 November 2009, Immobile also made his debut in a European competition, again as a second-half substitute for Alessandro Del Piero in a Champions League game against Bordeaux. In February 2010, he scored a hat-trick against Empoli in the 2010 Torneo di Viareggio final to seal the title for a second consecutive season.

In exchange for the two loans, Juventus acquired Niccolò Giannetti, Leonardo Spinazzola, and Austrian midfielder Marcel Büchel on loan from the Tuscan club. Immobile never broke into the first team, however, and in January 2011, he left Siena, after just 4 appearances and 1 goal. Following his departure from Siena, he was immediately loaned by Juventus to Grosseto, another Serie B club for the remainder of the 2010-11 Serie B season. Immobile made his debut for the club on 29 January 2011, in a 0-1 away win over Vicenza Calcio. He finished the campaign with 16 appearances for Grosseto before returning to Juventus omn 30 June 2011.[
On 17 August 2011, it was announced that Immobile would join Serie B club Pescara on a season-long loan from Juventus. He scored his first goal for the club on 26 August during his debut for Pescara in the first league match against Hellas Verona. By the end of the Serie B andata (first half of the season), Immobile had already scored 14 league goals. On 30 January 2012, Genoa confirmed that they had paid €4 million for half of the player's rights from Juventus, following his mercurial form in Serie B. He completed his season with Pescara in the Italian second division, as the club won the league title and sealed promotion to the Serie A. He also went on to become the Serie B season's top scorer with a total of 28 goals, seven more than the second-highest scorer, Juve Stabia's Marco Sau. Immobile was also named the Serie B's Player of the Year. On 20 June 2012, Immobile's co-ownership agreement was renewed by Juventus and Genoa, with the Ligurian side maintaining his registration rights for the 2012-13 Serie A campaign. For the €4 million transfer fee, Juventus converted into the purchase of Richmond Boakye's 50% registration rights in July 2012.
Immobile formally became a player Genoa on 1 July 2012 after the loan with Pescara expired. On 26 August 2012, Immobile scored his first Serie A goal in the home match won 2–0 against Cagliari. He scored his second on 16 September against his co-owners Juventus in his club's 1–3 loss home at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris. He also scored a goal in back-to-back games against Napoli and Sampdoria on 11 November and 18 November, respectively, as Genoa failed to win either game. He finished the season with five goals scored in 33 Serie A appearances (21 as a starter), failing to score a goal in the 2013-half of the season as Genoa finished in 17th place, just escaping relegation.
On 19 June 2013, Genoa and Juventus again renewed the co-ownership agreements of Immobile and Boakye.
On 12 July 2013 Juventus bought Genoa's half of Immobile for €2.75 million. He was then immediately transferred to city-rivals Torino under a new co-ownership deal for €2.75 million that saw Angelo Ogbonna go the other way.
Immobile made his debut for the granata during the first leg of Coppa Italia, lost 1-2 to Pescara. He provided an assist in his league debut for the club, but did not score until 7 October 2013 in a 2-2 draw against Sampdoria. Previously, Immobile had failed to score in Serie A since December. The goal signalled a run of form for Immobile, with the player scoring a further 4 goals in his next 6 matches, plus his first brace in Serie A during a game against Chievo in December 2013.
Immobile made his Italy under-19 debut in a 2009 European Championship qualifier in October 2008, but Italy failed to make it to the play-offs. On 25 March 2009, he made his debut with the Italy under-21 squad in a friendly match against the Austrian under-21s. He scored his first goal at the U-21 level at his second appearance, on 25 April 2012, in a friendly match won 4–1 against Scotland. He also scored against the Netherlands when he dribbled past three defenders and chipped the keeper. He was selected as a member of the Italy U-21 squad for the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship in Israel, along with Genoa teammate Andrea Bertolacci.
On 2 March 2014 he got his first call up to the senior national team by the Cesare Prandelli, for a friendly match against Spain 3 days later. He made his debut as a substitute with Spain winning 1-0.
