MLS: Toronto FC at San Jose Earthquakes Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

Ten games. That’s all Lucas Janson has remaining to prove to Toronto FC that he is a player worthy of a long-term investment.

The club has reportedly been keeping an eye on the Tigre attacker for some time, but he only recently came at an affordable price for Toronto: a 6-month loan deal with an option to buy.

If Toronto want to buy, however, that is the limited sample size they will be given. If the numbers Tigre released about the deal are to be believed as well, it could mean Toronto have to move players out as well.

The Janson saga could be an interesting story to watch for Toronto FC as their season winds down and he tries to help them in their last gasp push for the playoffs. Mitchell Tierney and Oliver Platt of DAZN discuss it on this week’s Footy Talks Podcast.

Other Toronto FC topics include a look at what has gone wrong with the backline, the importance of the Montreal Impact game and how many Canadian teams the guys think will make the playoffs this season.

They also preview the La Liga and Bundesliga seasons.
