A right winger who can also play underneath striker, Tajouri brings "power, pace and skill in one-v-ones" to the NYCFC attack, according to head coach Patrick Vieira. He will be expected to compete for minutes in an NYCFC attack that scored 56 goals in 2017.
INTERNATIONAL: Born in Switzerland to Libyan parents, Tajouri also holds an Austrian passport. He has represented Libya at the Under-20 level but has yet to receive a senior international cap.
OUTSIDE MLS: Came through the youth ranks at Austrian Wien in 2013 and went on loan to second-division Rheindorf Altach, helping them to promotion to the Austrian Bundesliga. After two-and-a-half years at Altach, Tajouri returned to Vienna, where he became a regular starter and enjoyed a career-best campaign in 2016-17, scoring 10 goals across all competitions.
