Leeds United are scheduling talks with Club Brugge starlet Noa Lang as some key transfer news emerges from Thorp Arch.
According to The Telegraph in recent days and weeks, Marcelo Bielsa’s side have been been watching the talented 21-year-old in action this season, although they are set to face major competition to try and land him this summer.
Now, Football Insider claim that a Leeds source has told them that the Whites will hold discussions with Lang once the season is over “as they step up plans to bring in attacking reinforcements”.
Hailed as a “phenomenon” by Belgian journalist Peter Vandenbempt, Lang made history when he became the first player in 60 years to to score a hat-trick on his Ajax debut, prompting manager Erik ten Hag to rave about him afterwards.
The Ajax boss said: “He showed (his talent) today and I am very happy with that. Noa shows (his ability) it during training and during the reserve matches. And today he has also clearly shown it at the highest level too.”
Able to play anywhere across the front, the starlet has shown he has a real eye for goal in his loan spell at Brugge this campaign, scoring 16 goals and providing a further 11 assists in just 37 games across all competitions.
Given his age, and the fact he’s a real goal threat in terms of scoring them himself and setting up his teammates too, Lang has got all the hallmarks of being a potentially exciting signing for Leeds.
What will also have the fans buzzing, is the fact that the Whites appear to be making immediate moves to strengthen the squad. Getting new signings in early will allow them the chance to work with Bielsa during pre-season, and better preparing them to hit the ground running at Elland Road next season.
Leeds appear to have their act together in terms of the upcoming summer transfer window, and that bodes very well for the future.
