Club Brugge winger Tajon Buchanan arrives in Italy to complete his imminent transfer to Inter Milan in the next few hours.
The Nerazzurri have identified the 24-year-old as the ideal profile to replace the injured Juan Cuadrado who underwent surgery last month.
Beppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio accelerated the negotiations with the Belgian club as they intend to put the player at Simone Inzaghi’s disposal as soon as possible.
The Canada international can occupy several roles on the right flank. Therefore, he will compete with Denzel Dumfries for the right wingback slot.
Buchanan has now landed in Milano. FcInter1908 posted a picture of the winger in the Lombardian city.
Several other Italian media outlets have posted videos for Buchanan in Milano on social media.

The source expects the Canada international to officially become an Inter Milan by the end of the day.
The former New England Revolution joined Club Brugge in January 2022. He has a contract with the Belgian side that is valid until 2025.
This season, he has contributed with three goals and four assists across all competitions.

Buchanan should sign a contract until 2028 that will see him earn around 1.5 million euros per season.
