REPORT: Cyle Larin linked to La Liga side Cádiz amid Club Brugge freeze-out
Could Cyle Larin end up leaving Club Brugge just six months after joining the Belgian outfit?
The Canadian striker was once again left out of the squad entirely for Club Brugge's latest match vs. Anderlecht amid reports he is nearing an exit from the Jan Breydel Stadium, with Spanish outlet Relevo linking the 27-year-old to La Liga outfit Cádiz CF. The two parties have reportedly met and a deal appears "one step away" from conclusion.
The former Besiktas striker scored his first and only goal in 10 games for Club Brugge back in September against Seraing but hasn't featured for the Belgian side under new manager Scott Parker this year, nor as he been named as a substitute. It's a stark constrast to his form for Canada, where Larin notched 17 goals in 27 games over the last two years for Les Rouges – and finished as the world's top goal-scorer in FIFA World Cup Qualifying as a result.
While Larin appears out of favour at Club Brugge, his Canada teammate Tajon Buchanan remains a steady fixture in the starting lineup, as Scott Parker experimented with his Canadian winger at RAM in a 4-2-3-1 formation.
Larin will be hoping to rediscover the rich vein of form that earned him so much praise and admiration in Turkey, particularly in 2021 where he scored 23 of his 39 total goals for Besiktas. With Jonathan David rediscovering his scoring feet at Lille OSC, and John Herdman facing the pressing issue of starting one striker for a more balanced Canada moving forward, Larin now faces plenty of question marks as the January transfer window rolls along.
