But now, It has been confirmed that the 24-year old striker will be coming to Montreal on April 3rd on a ''trial'' period and train with the club. The MLS transfer window closes on April 14th 2013 so a contract must be signed with the player by then and hence a deal between the Impact and Bologna.
Daniele Paponi made his Serie A debut at the age 17 with Parma and scored his first goal a year later in 2006. He is known for the famous ''scorpion kick'' that was also his first goal. Since, he has struggled to find a regular spot with a club and has left and come back to Parma after a couple of Serie B stints. He joins Bologna FC in June of 2010 on a 5-yearcontract valued at that time around €120,000 net plus bonuses.
During his time at Bologna FC, he played and practiced alongside current Impact players, Marco Di Vaio and Andrea Pisanu.
