Inter Milan are getting ever closer to striking an agreement with Club Brugge over the transfer of Tajon Buchanan.

The 24-year-old has now emerged as the leading candidate to replace Juan Cuadrado in the middle of the campaign.

The Colombian went under the knife last week to operate his Achilles tendon. His recovery will require several months on the sidelines, leaving Simone Inzaghi with a shortage of options on the right flank.

Therefore, Buchanan represents a like-for-like replacement who’s obviously younger than the former Juventus veteran.

According to Sky Sport Italia via FcInterNews, the Nerazzurri have already agreed terms with the right winger.

The Serie A leaders are now working on finding the right formula as they negotiate a deal with Club Brugge.

The Belgian side is reportedly asking for 10 million euros to part ways with the player whose contract will expire in 18 months.

Nevertheless, the source believes that an agreement between the two parties is getting closer.

Brugge also dropped the player out of the squad in their last two league fixtures. This could be another clue indicating towards an imminent transfer.

The report adds that the Nerazzurri are hellbent on closing the operation as soon as possible to avoid a late onslaught from Manchester City.

The English and European reigning champions are also keeping tabs on Buchanan. However. they’re yet to make a concrete approach.

Thus, the Beneamata are now leading the race for the Canadian international.

Buchanan is originally a right winger but can also play at wingback and fullback. This season, he contributed with three goals and four assists thus far.
