Noa Lang is getting closer to Arsenal day by day as transfer talk continues to intensify.
The latest reports in England suggest that Arsenal are frontrunners to land Noa Lang.
The Netherlands international was signed by Brugge in July 2021 from Ajax for a fee of 6 million euros. The 22-year-old has a contract until 2025 with the club. He has banged in 4 goals and provided 6 assists in 19 matches this term on all fronts.
Lang has represented Netherlands at Under-16, Under-17, Under-18, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 30 caps and scoring 9 goals, before making his senior international debut in October 2021. As a member of Netherlands national football team, he won two caps.
The Netherlands international is set to be a man in demand in the winter transfer window, with a host of clubs queuing up to pursue his signature.
Mikel Arteta is looking to shore up his attacking options and Lang happens to be a target. He has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe.
The Gunners will have funds to spend in the market and it will be interesting to see how they approach the winter transfer window.
The 22-year-old will offer the Arsenal manager the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.
According to the report, “Arsenal are planning their next move after reports emerged claiming top target Noa Lang is ready to push for a move away from Club Brugge in the New Year. The Gunners showed in the summer transfer window that they are intent on recruiting youthfully. All six of their permanent additions were aged 23 or younger. And they appear to be sticking with this method going forward. One man they’ve identified who fits this bill is Club Brugge winger Noa Lang. He’s 22 years old, so another potential star of the future like Ben White, Aaron Ramsdale and Takehiro Tomiyasu. After amassing 17 goals and 11 assists in just 37 games last season, Lang is very much a player in demand. The Gunners though are not alone in their pursuit, with AC Milan are hovering around the skilful winger. However, his name first became familiar with English audiences though after Leeds United expressed a strong interest in signing him over the summer. However, it is Arsenal who are reportedly in the driving seat to sign Lang. And their hopes have now seemingly been boosted following a major decision made by the winger.”

The Gunners have to fork out a huge transfer fee (in the region of 35-40 million euros) if they are genuinely interested in the 22-year-old.
Brugge would be wise to keep the Netherlands international, but if they do let him go expect it to be for a hefty sum.
Good signing for Arsenal?
Noa Lang stands as an excellent option for Arsenal.
It is smart from the club to invest in younger players, rather than splashing out big money on experienced players with no resale value.
Lang has all the skillset required to be a success story at Arsenal. Therefore, it makes sense for Arteta to step up his attempts to bring the 22-year-old to Premier League side.
If Arteta sees him as the right man for his side, the Gunners should quickly make a move to fend off interest from other clubs.
