Leeds United are showing ‘concrete interest’ in signing Club Brugge forward Noa Lang this summer, according to a report which has emerged on Saturday morning.
The Lowdown: Lang linked with Leeds switch
Marcelo Bielsa could be a busy man during the next transfer window, making quality additions to a squad that has just finished ninth in the Premier League.
The Latest: Fresh update provided
The Whites’ interest continues to look strong, with Football Insider now claiming that they are intensifying their efforts to sign the 21-year-old.
It is stated that Lang is one of six signings Leeds hope to bring in this summer, with the youngster seen as someone who could slot straight into the first-team.
A Leeds source has told the outlet the Whites will ‘step up’ their interest in the youngster, but do face competition to secure a deal.
The Verdict: Ideal summer signing?
Lang looks an exciting prospect with great potential and a player who could add quality and depth to Leeds’ squad.
He has been described as the ‘best player’ in the Jupiler Pro League by analyst Filip Joos.
One of the keys to Bielsa’s team going up another level is having even more options throughout the squad, and the Dutchman would provide competition for places in attacking areas.
His end product speaks for itself and his average of 1.8 key passes per game in the league last season was only bettered at Leeds by Raphinha (2.1), so he could bring some extra creativity to Elland Road.
In other news, Leeds have reportedly lost interest in signing one player this summer. Find out who it is here.
