According to Voetbal24, Club Brugge forward Noa Lang is interested in a move to Arsenal, despite admiring glances coming from Leeds.

What’s the story?

Well, Arsenal – as well as AC Milan – are keen to sign the 22-year-old.

Voetbal24 believe Lang will see out the season with Club Brugge before looking for a new club, with Arsenal an attractive option to him.

The Belgian news outlet add that Lang will cost €30m (£25.7m).

Voetbal24 state that the Netherlands Under-21 international would still be willing to join Arsenal, even though they’re going through a tough time.

It was Voetbal Belgie who revealed that Lang had actually agreed personal terms with Leeds, although the move never progressed further.

Now, his price tag is going up and up as he impresses for Club Brugge.

To put it simply, quite a lot.

As Transfermarkt shows, Lang has already played in four different positions across the frontline this season, so versatility is something he can provide.

Additionally, the Club Brugge No.10 is a scorer as well as a creator.

In 11 appearances this season, Lang has scored four goals and provided four assists.

Recently – in a game he didn’t actually score or assist in – Lang announced himself to Europe after securing the Man of the Match award against Paris Saint-Germain.

That may not seem like a big deal, although it certainly is when you realise that Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar started the game.

If Lang really does want to join Arsenal, then Mikel Arteta and Edu should be working overtime to get a deal done for this Dutch sensation.
