New Inter Milan signing Tajon Buchanan is reportedly itching to make his club debut this weekend against Fiorentina.
The 24-year-old signed for the Nerazzurri earlier this month. He arrives as a direct replacement for Juan Cuadrado who will be about for a substantial period of time while recovering from a surgery.
The Italian giants splashed around 10 million euros to secure the winger’s services from Club Brugge.
However, Inter coach Simone Inzaghi has yet to grant the new signing the opportunity to prove his worth.
Buchanan traveled with the squad to Riyadh and returned home with his maiden silverware after watching his teammates win the Italian Super Cup from the dugout.
The Nerazzurri will now resume their league campaign with a weekend clash in Florence.
According to Sport Mediaset via FcInter1908, Buchanan will be eager to make his debut on Sunday night.
The Canada international is facing strong competition for a starting berth.
His most natural role in Simone Inzaghi’s 3-5-2 system would be a right wingback. However, the coach already has two tried-and-tested options in the shape of Matteo Darmian and Denzel Dumfries.

While he’s unlikely to start, the source tips Buchanan to make an appearance as a second-half substitute.
Inter will be hoping to beat their Tuscan rivals in their attempts to reclaim the top spot in the Serie A table.
Juventus seized the lead last weekend while Inzaghi’s men were away in Saudi Arabia. Nevertheless, Inter still have an extra match in hand.
