Leeds United showed interest in signing Noa Lang in the summer market.
The Whites failed to acquire the Club Brugge star’s services and ended the window with Daniel James, who arrived late at Elland Road from Manchester United.
Various reports from the Belgian press had detailed the Premier League side wanting to take the winger, following his impressive start to life at Club Brugge.
Lang managed 17 goals and 11 assists in his debut season for the Jupiler Pro League side and started this campaign on a brighter note, with four goals and four assists.
The Netherlands U21 international’s agent has revealed Lang received serious interest late in the summer, but he didn’t specifically name name Marcelo Bielsa’s side or any other clubs.
“Towards the end there was concrete interest from several competitions. As much as he likes to be at Club Brugge, you noticed he was getting more restless, which makes sense,” Bart Baving told Het Laatste Nieuws.
Club Brugge initially signed Lang on loan from Ajax last summer and then made his stay permanent.
According to HLN, the Belgian side demanded €30m for the player. However, Baving has hinted the attacker’s employer may have to lower their valuation for his client.
“You saw that clubs were economical. We also heard amounts above €25m for Teun Koopmeiners. In the end, he went to Atalanta for €14m,” Baving explained.
“With the amount Club Brugge had in mind for Noa, it had become difficult anyway. Add to that, Noa didn’t want to exchange this club for any team.”
Lang is likely to finish this campaign at Club Brugge and should he continue his good form throughout the season, he’ll receive more interest, and time will tell if that includes interest from Leeds United.
