Report: Celtic said to be interested in Ajax winger Noa Lang

Celtic are thought to be keen on signing Ajax and Netherlands under-21 winger, Noa Lang, with a report from Goal claiming the Bhoys are keeping an eye.

Lang is another young player to come off the conveyor belt at Ajax and impressed last season before the global pandemic struck, playing seven times for FC Twente in a loan spell.

He scored just the once in his spell with Twente but did bag three times in just five appearances for Ajax before being sent out.

And Celtic are said to be keeping a watch on Lang, along with German side, Hertha Berlin.

 

The 21-year-old is extremely versatile, which is no unusual for a player to come through the Ajax system. He can play on either wing and can even slot into the middle of the park or up-top if needed.

According to Transfermarkt, Lang has entered the final year of his contract and Celtic could look to use that to their advantage in terms of negotiating a cheaper deal.

Ajax doesn’t half produce some fine players and Noa Lang looks like being another who could go right to the very top.

Celtic would be getting someone in their squad who could make an immediate impact. Quick, tricky, and capable of getting in and among the goals, Lang would be an exciting signing for Neil Lennon.

Furthermore, should Odsonne Edouard move on, Celtic will need goals in the squad. Lang, then, would certainly seem to be someone who is capable of bring that to the fold.
