Club Brugge are willing to sell Inter Milan transfer target Tajon Buchanan next month, while the Nerazzurri are waiting for the owners’ green light.
This January, signing a new wingback will be the main priority for the Serie A leaders following Juan Cuadrado’s surgery.
The Colombian will spend several months recovering on the sidelines, leaving the right flank exposed.
Therefore, the management is seeking a profile who can alternate with Denzel Dumfries.
In recent weeks, Buchanan surfaced as the preferred target for the Italian giants.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport via FcInterNews, Cub Brugge are open to selling the Canadian in January.
The 24-year-old’s contract runs until the summer of 2025. However, he has already told the Belgian club that he doesn’t intend to sign a renewal.
Therefore, Brugge won’t raise any walls around the Canada international. Instead, they will allow him to go as long as they receive a decent sum in return.
The source adds that Inter have already started negotiating with their counterparts. The Italians are hoping to strike an initial loan deal with an obligation to buy at the end of the season.
The Nerazzurri management is willing to splash a total amount of 8 million euros on the operation.
However, Suning’s consent remains the main missing element.
Inter Milan Waiting For Suning’s Approval To Sign Club Brugge Winger Tajon Buchanan
As the Pink newspaper explains, the club directors need pre-approval for this operation since it wasn’t planned.
The Beneamata had an extremely busy summer that saw them revamping Simone Inzaghi’s squad.
But while they were planning on enjoying a quiet winter transfer window, Cuadrado’s injury changed the narrative.
