Among the four trialists,
(*) Nicolas Cordova (Brescia), Henrique Cornelio Bem (SC Kriens) and Andrea Pisanu (Bologna)
(*) Forward Oussama Essabr (Crotone, on loan from Juventus)
All 4 players have joined the team in Florence. With 3 midfielders and 1 forward, the portoflio of players matchs what Nick De Santis pointed out in the team`s post mortem as per spots that needed to be filled.
Nicolas Cordova (Brescia)
The Chilean midfielder has a very interesting profile with some more than decent Serie A and Serie B experience under his belt. Nicolas is represented by Hugo Rubi of PassBall, a Chilean FIFA agent who was also an ex-player in the Chilean League in the 90's. Known clients represented by PassBall include Luis Jimenez (ex-Inter Milan and currently in Dubai's Al-Ahly) and Diego Rubio of Sporting Lisbon.

Henrique Cornelio Bem (SC Kriens)
Not a lot of information on the Brazilian midfielder. He seems to be tagged as a versatile midfielder as he is described as defensive and offensive. His contract is set to expire on June 30th 2013.
On the SC Kriens website, he does say this about his role models and motto:
Role model when he was younger: Fenomeno Ronaldo, Ronaldinho Gaucho
Role model now: Andrew Pirlo
Motto: God is Faithful / We must believe in God
Andrea Pisanu (Bologna)
Oussama Essabr (Crotone, on loan from Juventus)
The young Moroccan forward was with Juventus B team but has never played with the A team. He has since joined FC Crotone only to come back to Juventus this season. His trial with the Montreal Impact could be a chance for him to see his professional career get a kick start.
