Leeds United need to decide if they will push button and bid for Noa Lang transfer

Leeds United need to decide if they will push the button and bid for Club Brugge winger Noa Lang, according to journalist Dean Jones.

Lang has been a long-term target of the Whites and openly admitted that the club tried to sign him in the summer of 2021 when Marcelo Bielsa was in charge.

Jones confessed that Leeds United will “probably” be in the race to sign Lang again, however, they will face competition from up to 12 other teams.

“They probably will be in the race when the time comes,” said Jones as quoted by GIVEMESPORT.

“But, Noa Lang’s got this global reputation, whereby probably 10, 12 teams are watching Noa Lang at the moment, just waiting to decide whether it’s time to push the button and actually go through with a bid for a player who’s got such potential.”

Do it.

There’s a reason why 12 other teams will be chasing Lang, he’s an absolute top talent and Leeds United should do everything they can to sign him.

He was especially decent the last term for Brugge, scoring nine goals and contributing 15 assists in 48 appearances across all competition for the Belgian outfit.

Fabrizio Romano revealed it would likely cost around €30-35m (£26.2m-£30.6m) which is a solid price for any talent in today’s market, never mind one as talented as Lang.

It would be foolish for Leeds not to take advantage of this cut-price deal, they can reap the rewards of Lang who is yet to hit his peak as a professional.

He’d fit perfectly into Leeds’ attacking-minded team and could be a crucial cog inside Jesse Marsch’s pressing machine for seasons to come.

It would be an astute signing, to say the least, and one that would show the pulling power of the top talents Leeds can sign in the transfer window.
