Leeds United are reportedly set to sign star Dutch winger Noa Lang, who finished as Club Brugge's top scorer this season.


According to a report from the Daily Mail, Leeds are holding talks over a potential deal for Noa Lang, who has been on their radar after a remarkable year in Belgium with Club Brugge, helping them win the league title.


The 21-year-old scored 17 goals in all competitions this season as well as racking up 11 assists, with his loan spell in Belgium from Ajax being very successful.


He has attracted plenty of interest across Europe, but Leeds are the ones that are the most interested in signing him permanently this summer.


The report claims that Brugge have the option to make his loan move permanent for around £5 million, but they could also look to sell him instantly for a significant profit.


The Telegraph has recently claimed that his valuation is at around £20 million, but they also claimed that he had already agreed a contract with the Belgian club.


Lang can play all across the attacking line, and since he is still developing, his value could increase drastically over the coming years.


The Daily Mail however does state that his attitude has led to some issues with Ajax, and since Marcelo Bielsa has built his Leeds side on teamwork and hard work, it will be quite a gamble to sign someone that has been deemed as troublesome recently.


There is the option to negotiate with Ajax directly, but with Brugge being given the priority in the deal and with talks already starting, it looks like Leeds will have to wait for the Belgian side to complete the transfer first.


Lang's most notable run of form came at the start of 2021 right before there were some COVID-19 issues at the club, with him getting four goals and three assists in January.
