Arsenal have turned their season around to a certain extent with back to back wins in the league. They beat Norwich City and Burnley respectively with a 1-0 margin. Mikel Arteta has been massively boosted by having his midfield metronome Thomas Partey back. However, Arsenal fans will be worried about their creative third as Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka had subpar performances while Nicolas Pepe looked hot and cold at times. Keeping that in mind, the Gunners may look to bring in reinforcement on the wing to release the extra burden on Martin Odegaard.
Spanish media outlet Fichajes recently reported that Arsenal are monitoring Dutch youngster Noa Lang. The 22-year-old can play on either wing and has been in exceptional form since last season.
Lang’s Breakthrough Season In Belgium
Lang initially started his career in the Feyenoord Youth Academy before leaving for Ajax. Then the youngster represented the Duth side at every age group and was subsequently promoted to the first team. Belgian side Club Brugge snapped him up on loan in 2020 and Lang never looked back since. He became a hit in Belgium, notching up 14 goals in just 24 Jupiler Pro League appearances. (transfermarkt)
His form convinced Brugge to sign him permanently for a reported £5.4 million. He has 4 goals and 4 assists in 9 games this season at Brugge. He has already displayed his class this term in UEFA Champions League clash against PSG. As a result, several European clubs have taken great interest in his talent.
Why Arteta Needs Him At Arsenal?
Arsenal currently have Nicolas Pepe, Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli in their ranks. Pepe, who has been at the club for more than 3 years now, is yet to justify his price tag. His reluctance to track back and help his fellow full-back has been an issue at the club. On the other hand, his contributions upfront have been nothing more than ordinary. Bukayo Saka and Martinelli are just starting out and need competition.
Noa Lang is an attacker who stands out for playing as a left-winger, but can also fill various roles within the offensive flank. He has experience in all the lower categories of the Dutch national team and has even received the call of Louis Van Gaal in the last call-up of the senior team. It seems he could soon take the next step in his career and Arsenal are in desperate need of someone of his profile.
The Belgian team announced the renewal of Noa Lang until the summer of 2025 with the intention of shielding him from bigger teams in the transfer window. However, Brugge will be tempted if any offer around €30m (£25.7m) is made for the player’s services. Be that as it may, Arsenal will face plenty of competition to get a deal over the line, as Leicester City and AC Milan are named as interested parties in the report.
