Noa Lang followed by Leeds for some time, £25m+ move possible in summer - not January

Leeds United and Arsenal have been watching Club Brugge winger Noa Lang for quite some time, according to Nieuwsbald.

It is reported that AC Milan have joined the race, but that no talks would be opened for a price less than £25.4million.

The online outlet suggests that the Italian side are likely to follow up their interest with a bid ahead of Leeds.

Lang is said not to be in a hurry to leave Belgium and is ready to win his second domestic league title in his career.

It is suggested that a move is more likely to happen in the summer because of that, rather than the upcoming January window.

Things have taken another turn this week during the international break, with the door appearing to be opened.

Club Brugge coach Philippe Clement admitted that he is powerless to stop Lang from leaving once the bids come flowing in.

“I’m realistic when it comes to things like this,” he said. “If there is an impossible-to-refuse offer for him, we won’t be able to stop him in January.”

Not happening?

Leeds may have watched Lang for quite some time, but if it was ever going to happen, it will have had to have been in the last window.

Dan James arrived on deadline day instead from Manchester United, and we can’t imagine another winger being on the shortlist.

The only way we could need another winger is if all the talk surrounding Raphinha will lead to a major exit.

Deco confirmed today that an exit looks inevitable in the future with approaches already being made to all parties.

No one wants that, and at this stage, Lang will be moving elsewhere.
