Journalist says Noa Lang knows Leeds United want to sign him

Football journalist Dean Jones has claimed that Club Brugge star Noa Lang is well aware that Leeds United want to sign him.

Jesse Marsch’s side are expected to be active in the upcoming January transfer window. It looks like the Whites will be in another relegation battle, and they’ll need all the help they can get.

Could they make a move for Lang?

Journalist says Noa Lang knows Leeds United want to sign him

Leeds have long been linked with a move to sign Lang.

Just after last season ended, Calciomercato.it revealed that Leeds will try to sign him after being continuously linked with a move in previous windows.

No move materialised last summer, but Jones has revealed that Lang is very much aware of Leeds’ interest. However, the journalist has claimed that Everton want him too and could make a move in 2023.

Jones told GiveMeSport: “Leeds have been hot on Lang for ages and he’s very aware of their interest.

“But, Everton are looking for creative options, so that might be something to look out for.”

Lang signed a four-year contract at Brugge last year and that does not expire until the summer of 2025.

He plays like Zinedine Zidane

If there was a way to bring prime Zinedine Zidane to today’s game, we’re sure every club in world football would want to sign him.

The Real Madrid and France legend is one of the greatest players to ever grace the game, and there really hasn’t been anyone quite like him. However, Lang’s old coach Richard Witschge thinks the reported Leeds United target has a bit of Zizou in him.

He said on The Warming Up podcast, as translated by Inside Futbol: “When you see his (Lang’s) qualities, it is unbelievable.

“He can play out with people and he has [an eye for] a through ball. I think he’s a bit of a Zidane. This guy is so athletic, fast and technical too. He basically has everything Zidane had.”
