That’s according to transfer insider Dean Jones, who claims that the Dutchman could well end up at Everton, much to Victor Orta’s frustration.
With Fabrizio Romano issuing a positive verdict on a potential deal for the Whites, Jones told GIVEMESPORT: “I think it’d be a big blow for Leeds to lose out on another potential signing to a club that they would consider to be of a similar level. So, I don’t think they could really allow that to happen.”
Although it might have seemed a big blow, should they sign Lang it will have fans quickly forgetting the Brazilian forward.
When comparing their recent goal tallies anyway, it is clear to see who the more prolific option would be.
Even when placing their outstanding campaigns side by side, it marks little comparison.
There is a reason why football analyst Filip Joos labelled him “the best player in the league”.
Having seemingly transcended Belgian football, his next logical step will be to one of Europe’s top five leagues.
Orta will want to avoid a Cunha repeat with the Toffees lurking, however, will be quietly happy to have missed out on their initial target should they still land Lang.
