Leeds United could sign Noa Lang for £17m this summer - report
Leeds United could complete their second major signing of the summer and bring Noa Lang to Elland Road.
According to Voetbal Belgie, a £17million fee could get the job done, but Brugge are holding out for £21million.
They’ve already begun looking for a replacement for Lang and have identified Morocco international Oussama Idrissi as a potential signing.
However, per The Daily Mirror, Brugge are under no pressure to sell the Dutch winger, but it appears that they will not stand in his way if they get the transfer fee they’re looking for.
Signing a wide attacker is a priority for us this summer and Lang is available at the optimum price.
In today’s day and age, getting a player of his calibre for £17million will be considered a very good deal and Victor Orta should be rubbing his hands at the prospect of bringing him to the club this summer.
Last season, the Dutchman scored 17 goals and assisted seven, which was pivotal in guiding his club to the league title.
He played for the Belgian outfit on loan from Ajax, but they triggered an option in the loan deal to sign him permanently for only £5.2million.
They’re set to make at least a 300 percent profit off his sale so it could prove to be a beneficial deal for all parties.
Signing Lang would help ease Patrick Bamford’s goal-scoring responsibilities and add numbers to our attacking options.
Jack Harrison and Raphinha have been good, but the former hasn’t been a reliable goal scorer while the latter has missed games through injury.
Lang’s medical record makes for good reading. Last season he missed just one game due to injury while the other two times he couldn’t make the squad was because he got the coronavirus.
All in all, he seems to be a perfect signing and we must snap him up before the demand for his services rises in the coming weeks.
