Savolainen has been impressive for Finnish champion Tampere the last two seasons, and was rewarded with a place in the Finland squad for the friendly against Spain in November.

"He plays at the midfield or the flank, and was impressive when we met Tampere this summer. He is an exciting player we want to take a closer look at. We might let him play the matches in the Maspalomas tournament," assistant director of sports Erik Hoftun tell rbk.no.

Vikestad of local Trondheim club Ranheim has been on trial at Rosenborg several times the last two years. In March he was in the squad for the pre-season friendly against Aalesund.

"Robert has been impressive as winger at Ranheim this year, and we want to see him over a longer period of time. He also will get the possibility of playing. We think it's very important that young, local players get the chance of showing themselves off," Hoftun says.

Ibrahim Kone is the third on trial. The U21 international of the Ivory Coast was elected the best goalkeeper of the Toulon tournament in France this summer.
