West Ham: Irons laying groundwork to sign Noa Lang -NON-NEWSNOW

West Ham United are laying the groundwork to sign Club Brugge star Noa Lang in January, according to a report by Calciomercato.

The Lowdown: Lang’s career so far

Having arrived in Belgium last summer on a permanent deal from Ajax, the left winger has gone on to produce 27 goals and 28 assists in 92 games for the Jupiler Pro League outfit.

The 23-year-old has added a goal and assist to his tally so far this season, having struggled with an ankle injury for half of Brugge’s games.

Since joining the Belgian club, Lang has subsequently made his debut for the Netherlands national team, further securing an additional four international appearances to his name.

The Latest: West Ham’s interest in Lang

According to Calciomercato, the Hammers are looking to sign the Dutch attacker in January.

Having reportedly turned down a move to Leeds United this summer, the Irons join AC Milan and Atletico Madrid in the race to secure his services in the winter window.

As translated by Hammers.News, Calciomercato claimed: “Milan does not lose sight of Noa Lang, 23-year-old winger expiring in 2025 with Brugge: on him there are also West Ham and Atletico Madrid.”

The Verdict: Benrahma replacement?

Known for his skilful abilities as a winger, Lang has earned comparisons to West Ham’s Said Benrahma.

Despite creating more chances than anyone else in the Hammers’ squad this season (via Fotmob), the Algeria international often finds himself on the bench. having started just three Premier League games so far in 2022/23.

In the Irons’ 2-0 win over Wolves at the weekend, David Moyes opted to replace the injured Maxwel Cornet with Pablo Fornals, rather than using the seemingly more direct replacement in the former Brentford ace.

Therefore, Lang – who has been dubbed ‘the Dutch Neymar’ by members of the media – could be seen as a possible replacement for Benrahma, who appears to be struggling to win over his manager in east London.
