Club career[edit]

Lanús and loans[edit]

Born in Posadas, Misiones, Cano was a Lanús youth graduate. He made his first team debut on 13 February 2008, coming on as a late substitute for Lautaro Acosta in a 3–1 Copa Libertadores home win against Danubio.[1]

Cano made his Primera División debut on 17 February 2008, starting in a 1-0 away loss against Huracán.[2] On 29 March, he scored his first professional goal by netting his team's only in a 3–1 loss at San Lorenzo,[3] and finished his first senior season with two goals in 11 appearances.

On 21 August 2009, Cano was loaned to newly-promoted side Chacarita Juniors, for one year.[4] Afer featuring sparingly but suffering relegation he returned to Lanús, but after being rarely used by the latter, he was loaned out to Colón on 30 December 2010.[5]

On 26 July 2011, Cano moved abroad for the first time in his career, joining Categoría Primera A side Deportivo Pereira on loan until December.[6] The following 31 January, he moved to Paraguay's Nacional also in a temporary deal.[7]

Independiente Medellín[edit]

On 5 July 2012, Cano agreed to a permanent contract with Independiente Medellín.[8] He was an immediate starter for the club, scoring nine goals in his first season and 15 goals in his second.

In the 2014 campaign, Cano scored 27 goals and being the top goalscorer of the Clausura tournament; highlights included a hat-trick in a 4–1 away routing of Millonarios on 11 October.

Pachuca and loans[edit]

On 21 January 2015, Cano switched teams and countries again after agreeing to a contract with Liga MX side Pachuca.[9] He made his debut for the club on 1 February, starting in a 1–0 loss at Guadalajara, and scored his first goal on 4 March in a 1–1 CONCACAF Champions League away draw against Montreal Impact.

On 11 December 2015, after failing to feature in any league matches during the first half of the campaign due to a knee injury,[10] Cano was loaned to fellow league team León.[11] After being a regular starter, he returned to Pachuca and was mainly utilized as a substitute.

On 10 January 2018, Cano returned to Independiente Medellín on an initial six-month loan deal.[12] On 19 May, he extended his link until the end of the year,[13] and ended the season with 32 goals overall.
