Leeds United may table bid for Noa Lang later this month
Leeds United might table a bid to sign Club Brugge forward Noa Lang before the end of May, according to GVA.
The Belgian news outlet claims no offer has been made nor have any talks taken place over Leeds’ bid to sign Lang, but they could happen after Brugge finish their Jupiler League play-off campaign, which concludes on May 23.
It is understood that Brugge want over £21.7million for the 21-year-old Dutchman, who’s scored 16 goals and supplied 10 assists in 34 appearances across all competitions this season for the Belgian club.
‘Best player in Belgium’
Lang has been in stunning form for Club Brugge this season.
Although Brugge lost 3-0 to Genk on Friday night, they are still well-placed to win the Belgian Jupiler League and Lang has played a massive role in that.
Ex-Burnley and Belgium midfielder Steven Defour has been waxing lyrical about Lang recently, telling Sporza that the Dutch forward “is the best player in the league this season”.
Leeds could really do with someone like that being added to their squad in the summer transfer window.
Not only is Lang young and in great form, he would also add to an area of the squad that Marcelo Bielsa and Victor Orta could do with strengthening.
With Ezgjan Alioski looking likely to leave on a free transfer, someone new who can play on the left-wing wouldn’t be a bad idea to compete with Jack Harrison.
While Harrison has done well in his first Premier League season with the Whites, he has had periods where his form dips and there’s not really anyone who’s an out-and-out left-wing who can replace him.
Lang can play anywhere in the attack, including up front, but he’s played most of his matches this season on the left-wing [transfermarkt].
He’d be a very welcome addition in West Yorkshire.
