Leeds United were credited with an interest in Club Brugge star Noa Lang last summer and also during the winter 2022 market.
The Whites failed to take the winger away from the Belgian club, but that doesn’t mean they have completely forgotten about him.
Calciomercato.it have a report on the 22-year-old today and they name Leeds United as one of his suitors.
AC Milan, like the Premier League side, also have the former Ajax man on their agenda for this summer. They are ‘pushing’ with the intermediary and the player’s agent to ‘tighten the deal’.
The Serie A winners have so far not committed to a date to sort out the operation for Lang. There are several reasons behind this and one of them is the competition they are facing from Leeds United.
Milan will have to offer €25m to the Jupiler Pro League side and the salary offered to him is €2.5m per year. With regards to the latter, the San Siro club are ‘behind’ Jesse Marsch’s side in the race for the transfer.
Lang’s priority is to join Milan this summer, but ‘concrete acts are needed’ to seal this deal. The meetings between his camp and the Italian champions have so far not seen an agreement and a new meeting is expected to take place next week.
Leeds United must act quickly if they wish to get ahead of Milan to land the Dutchman.
