The Impact of Montreal will see the arrival of midfielder Blerim Džemaili early next week, said head coach Mauro Biello in front of the media during training on Friday morning.

Dzemaili played in 25 games for Joey Saputo’s Bologna FC before making the move over to the MLS. He was the team’s second top goal scorer for Bologna, getting 8 goals on the season.

Mauro Biello also compared the Dzemaili move to Montreal much like the Nicolas Lodeiro move to Seattle last summer. As Seattle was out of a playoff spot in mid-July but when midfielder Lodeiro came along they ended up making the playoffs and ended up also winning MLS cup last season.

According to Mauro Biello, Dzemaili can speak many different languages including English, Italian, and even French.
