It's cliché to say that any player remotely linked to Serie A is automatically a Montreal Impact target but the latest rumor has Hugo Campagnaro coming to MLS. Toronto FC is also mentionned as a potential landing place for the ex Napoli SSC and  Inter Milan defender.

With the depth at the center back position, it would seem far fetched to see the Impact's technical staff pull the trigger on a 34-year old defender, though his experience is more than interesting. With Laurent Ciman being the only guaranteed starter at CB, might Montreal be looking to create a strong duo in front of Evan Bush?

With the club's problems at the defensive midfield area, getting stronger at the back would make sense to compensate even more. But Frank Klopas has just mentioned that the club is looking at solutions up front in the form of an experienced striker that can help the team right away while helping the younger players along in their professional development process.

Let's not forget about the obvious connection between Campagnaro and the Impact: Enzo Concina. The potential link between the club and the Argentine defender would be the ex- Napoli and Inter Milan assistant coach. Concina joined the Impact during the 2014-2015 off-season after one year with D.C. United

Campagnaro has played over 100 Serie A  games with Napoli and Inter Milan with a big chunk of it under the tutellage of Mazzarri and Concina .
