HOW ACQUIRED: Transfer from Austria Wien on Jan. 12, 2018. Agreed to a new multi-year contract on January 16, 2020.
A right winger who can also play underneath striker, Tajouri brings power, pace and one-v-one skill to the NYCFC attack. Exploded in his debut season with 12 overall goals, rarely wasting a shot. Of those goals, six gave NYCFC a lead and four pulled them level.
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.
