That’s according to Dean Jones, who said in a recent interview with GIVEMESPORT that if the Club Brugge KV winger goes on to impress for the Netherlands in Qatar, the Whites would likely be one of the clubs vying for his signature come the January transfer window.
However, the journalist went on to say that 12 other teams would be keeping a watch on the five-cap international throughout the World Cup, with the intention of making their own bid for the Dutchman this winter.
Jones stated of Victor Orta’s interest in Lang: “They probably will be in the race when the time comes.” But Noa Lang has this worldwide reputation, and maybe 10-12 clubs are studying him right now, deciding if it’s time to press the button and really make an offer for a guy with such potential.”
Explode in Qatar
While Lang has not had the best season in front of goal so far this season, scoring four goals and registering three assists in 16 appearances across all competitions, the 23-year-old could well be set to explode on the biggest stage of international football in Qatar if he can refind his 2021/22 form this winter.
Indeed, in his 37 Jupiler Pro League appearances for Brugge last season, the £16m-rated talent was in breathtaking form, scoring seven goals, registering 12 assists, and creating 19 big chances for his teammates, while also taking 2.0 shots, making 1.9 key passes, and completing 1.7 dribbles per game.
With these results, the £25k-per-week attacker averaged a truly astounding SofaScore match rating of 7.20, establishing him as Alfred Schreuder’s joint fifth-best player in Belgian football’s top division.
The player that Football Talent Scout Jacek Kulig described as “unstoppable” and Peter Vandenbempt described as a “phenomenon” also attracted the attention in the Champions League, where he provided one assist while taking an average of 1.7 shots, making 1.2 vital passes, and completing 3.2 dribbles per game.
Based on these measurements, the Dutchman averaged an extraordinarily high SofaScore match rating of 6.97, placing him as Brugge’s third-best performance in Europe’s most prestigious club event the previous season.
As a result, if Lang can replicate his form for the Netherlands at the World Cup this and next month, it appears highly likely that the 23-year-old will attract a number of offers in the January window, with the €25 million (£22 million) valued forward looking to make an exceptional addition to Jesse Marsch’s current attacking options at Elland Road.
