Bologna forward Marco Di Vaio is reportedly weighing an offer from the Montreal Impact.
The Montreal Impact's penchant for bringing in players with Italian Serie A pedigree took another significant step forward as Bologna forward Marco Di Vaio has said he's currently weighing an offer, according to a MLSsoccer.com report. The 35-year-old has already decided to leave Bologna. Impact Sporting Director Nick Di Santis told reporters "We have a very high interest in Marco Di Vaio" on a Friday conference call.
Di Vaio is still a potent scoring force despite his relatively advanced age. He's coming off a season in which he started 30 Serie A matches, scored 10 goals and had five assists. As recently as two years ago, he was a 19-goal scorer and he scored 24 Serie A goals in 2008-09. Since joining Bologna four seasons ago, he's scored 65 goals in 135 appearances.
He would be eligible to join the Impact after the summer transfer window opens in June.
