Manchester City have set their sights on acquiring the services of Club Brugge’s dynamic attacker, Tajon Buchanan, as speculation mounts that a cut-price January deal could materialize if the Canadian international fails to reach terms on a new contract.
Buchanan has carved out a reputation in Belgium for his assertive and aggressive style of play, making him a player of interest for Manchester City’s recruitment strategy.
Having featured in 67 games for Club Brugge, Buchanan has showcased his versatility by notching up 5 goals and providing 12 assists.
His current market value, as reported by Transfermarkt.com, stands at an estimated 10 million euros, making him an attractive prospect for potential suitors.
The Canadian international’s prowess extends beyond the Belgian league, as evidenced by his inclusion in Canada’s squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
In a historic moment for Canadian soccer, Buchanan played a pivotal role in their second match against Croatia on November 27, assisting in the delivery of a cross that led to Alphonso Davies’ header and Canada’s first-ever goal at a men’s World Cup.
