According to the reports, Leeds United have identified Noa Lang as their top attacking target in the upcoming summer transfer window. The Premier League outfit are desperate for attacking reinforcements after a disappointing campaign that sees them involved in a tense relegation battle.
Leeds United are aware of Lang’s desire to leave Club Brugge at the end of the season, in favour of a new challenge elsewhere. Many expect him to make the jump to the English Premier League, as he had been linked with a move to England for a long time.
The report suggests Leeds have contacted Lang’s agents, exploring the possibility of the attacker’s potential move to Elland Road at the end of the season. The Whites consider the Dutchman as an ideal reinforcement option as coach Jesse Marsch looks to upgrade his chances in the attacking ranks.
Leeds were in contention to sign the Club Brugge youngster last summer. But a move did not materialise, with the Whites ending up settling for Manchester United star Daniel James on deadline day.
Raphinha’s potential exit could cause a major void in Leeds’ attacking unit. And it appears Marsch is keen on filling that void by bringing in Noa Lang from Club Brugge this summer. The Dutchman has shown immense potential in Belgium as a left-winger by trade in the past couple of years. He has impressed the onlookers with his pace, trickery and knack for scoring goals.
Other interested clubs:
The 22-year-old has enjoyed an outstanding season in Belgium’s top flight, contributing seven goals and 11 assists from his 31 appearances.
With over three years remaining on the Netherlands international’s contract, Brugge remain in a strong position with regards to his future.
Nevertheless, bids are expected to arrive during the summer transfer window, and Calciomercato claims that one of the proposals put forward could come from West Ham.
Providing that they secure European football for next season, the Hammers are expected to make a number of notable additions, and a versatile attacker who can be deployed down the centre is towards the top of their priorities.
The Dutchman is on course to become of the best attackers in the world.
He’s taken his game from strength to strength, and he is already terrifying Europe’s best teams. Doing it for a club like Brugge makes it all the more challenging, but that does not seem to faze him. If he wants to reach that elite level as many think he can, he will have to leave the Belgian side sooner rather than later.
