<p>Being the first Canadian in the Italian league makes me incredibly proud, Buchanan remarked. “That is a significant accomplishment.”</p>
<p>The Gazzetta dello Sport said that the 24-year-old Buchanan’s transfer price was 7 million euros ($7.7 million), but that amount might increase to 10 million euros ($11 million) with incentives.</p>
<p>Buchanan has a deal that runs until 2027–2028 and will bring him around 1.5 million euros ($1.6 million) a season.</p>
<p>At the 2022 World Cup, Buchanan has made 35 appearances for Canada and has started all three of their group’s matches. This season, he made 12 league games for Brugge and scored two goals.</p>
<p>Given that Denzel Dumfries’ contract has not yet been extended and Juan Cuadrado is out, Buchanan provides head coach Simone Inzaghi with an alternative on the right flank. He has experience playing as a winger in midfield as well as at right back.</p>
<p>“I’m a flexible player,” I’m able to play a variety of (positions), but my main goals right now are to learn all I can, be there for the squad, and adjust to a new way of playing, Buchanan said on the Inter website.</p>
<p>Along with Alphonso Davies and Jonathan David, Buchanan is one of Canada’s young players who had an impact on the squad during the last World Cup.</p>
<p>“I’m a really direct player, and I like to operate in the half spaces around the opposition penalty area, going one-on-one with the defender and creating numerical superiority,” Buchanan said. “I can definitely get better when it comes to defense.”</p>
<p>Juventus is behind Inter by two points in the Serie A rankings. Inter will visit Hellas Verona on Saturday.</p>
