The new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar (late 2016) required 87W to be charged. I'm interesting to know if this cable will provide this enough Watts when connected to an iMac

Yes. However, the MacBook charges at up to 29W; while this cable supports up to 36W, most USB-A power supplies will only be 5W or 10W. Check the power capacity of your USB-A charger. While this will still work on, say, a 10W charger, your MacBook would then only charge at 1/3 of the possible speed, which might not even be enough to keep it running while you use it.
