Club career

Early career

Born in Feldkirch, Austria, Büchel began his career with the youth teams of Swiss club FC St. Gallen and Italian club Siena. Büchel signed a season-long loan deal with Juventus for the 2010-11 season, and made his professional debut for Juventus in the 2010-11 UEFA Europa League, in a group stage match against Austrian team Red Bull Salzburg on 4 November 2010. [2]

On 1 July 2011, Büchel was sent out on loan to Serie B side Gubbio on a season-long deal.[3] He finished the 2011-12 Serie B campaign having made 17 league appearances for the club, and scoring 1 goal.[4] Büchel spent the next season out on loan to Cremonese.[4]


On 31 January 2013, it was officially communicated that Büchel was sold to former club Juventus in a co-ownership deal. In exchange, Siena also signed Juventus' Primavera captain Andrea Schiavone, also on a co-ownership deal. As part of the negotiations, Büchel's loan spell at Cremonese would continue.[5] He was called up to the Juventus first team by head coach Antonio Conte, as part of a 31-man squad for their pre-season training camp in Valle d’Aosta on 11 July 2013.[6]

On 2 September 2013, Büchel was officially loaned out to Virtus Lanciano on a season-long deal.[7][8]
