Leeds United could miss out on Noa Lang amid interest from Arsenal
Leeds United could miss out on another target to a high profile club as Arsenal have reportedly entered the race for Noa Lang.
According to Voetbal Belgie, Leeds were keen on signing the 22-year-old this summer and had even agreed personal terms with the Club Brugge attacker.
However, the move did not materialise and the “incredible” [Jacek Kulig] Dutchman ended up staying put at the Jan Breydel Stadium, but could very well be on his way out in the coming months.
Now, according to a recent report by Fichajes, Arsenal have entered the race to sign the Dutchman.
Given the fact that they’re owned by an American billionaire suggests that they have an array of riches.
This summer, they were one of Europe’s biggest spenders and could easily outbid Leeds in order to get their hands on Lang.
However, it’s not all doom and gloom for Leeds as they signed Dan James this summer, who plays in the same position as Lang.
He’s been in the English game for a while, has a decent amount of Premier League experience under his belt, and most importantly, has been someone who’s been tracked by Bielsa for a while.
While Lang appears to be impressive outside the top five leagues, he’s yet to prove it at a big club or another side in the Premier League.
There’s already a decent amount of interest so if the Whites were to move for him, it would see them having to pay a lot of money to acquire his services.
The club would be better off focusing on the development of Crysencio Summerville while Raphinha, James and Jack Harrison challenge for the two wide attacking spots.
