A report from Spain has credited both Arsenal and Leicester City with an interest in Noa Lang.
Who is Noa Lang?
After enjoying a loan spell with the club during 2020/21, Noa Lang would sign for Belgian outfit Club Brugge permanently in July of 2021.
Brugge signed Lang from Dutch powerhouse Ajax, with whom he had spent many of his younger years, for a fee reported to be around £5.4m.
Despite having been on Ajax’s books for some time, the 22-year-old would only feature 14 times for the club’s senior side, scoring four and assisting one.
With Brugge, however, Lang has become a key figure already. During his 2020/21 loan spell, the winger scored 17 goals and provided 11 assists in 38 outings across all competitions, including one goal and one assist in the Champions League.
And now, as a permanent member of the Belgian giants’ squad, the Dutchman has, so far, netted three and assisted four in eight league outings this term.
Lang is a left-winger by trade. However, he is very versatile and can also operate both on the right and as a centre-forward.
Arsenal and Leicester City eye Noa Lang
Given his age, versatility and recent goal contribution record, it is not too surprising to hear of Lang attracting interest from some top clubs.
The attacker is currently contracted to Brugge until 2025. Despite such terms, though, a report from Spanish outlet Fichajes this weekend has credited the trio of Arsenal, Leicester and AC Milan with an interest in the 22-year-old.
The report also provides an insight into Lang’s price-tag, said to be set at €22m.
