TRANSFERS - An English giant closely monitoring Club Bruges star
Arsenal have been linked with a move for Club Bruges, man of the moment, Noa Lang. The former Ajax winger, last week outshone Lionel Messi, winning Man of the Match, as the Belgian champions held PSG.
The flying winger, right footed, but predominantly used of the left, shot to fame a few years ago, aged 20, when he became the first player to score a hattrick for Ajax on a top-flight debut. Sadly, the immature Lang did not see eye to eye with his coach Ten Hag, who reportedly took issue with the player’s individuality and inability to follow instruction and Lang soon fund himself down the pecking order to veteran new signing Ryan Babel.
For the remainder of the 19/20 season Lang, which should have been January to May, Lang was loaned to Twente, but before the young star had a real chance to impress, the pandemic cut short the season. In the summer of 2020 Ajax agreed to loan Lang to FC Bruges, a move later ratified for what now seems a ship at 6 million Euros.
