In a recent report, Voetbalbelgie mentioned that Everton are among clubs hoping to land Club Brugge winger Noa Lang. It is believed that the Toffees could face competition in the form of Leeds United, Aston Villa and West Ham United in pursuit of the Dutch attacker.
Lang’s Impressive Form In European Football This Season
Lang has caught the eye with his performances in European football during this campaign as he has put in a couple of impressive displays for Brugge in the final third. The 23-year-old has registered two goals and six assists in 28 matches for the Belgian side this season across all fronts.
The Dutch sensation has given a good account of himself in Europe based on his average of 1.0 shots, 1.0 key passes and 2.5 dribbles per game in the UEFA Champions League this season. However, he needs to improve his ball distribution after completing 70.9% of his attempted passes in European football (stats via whoscored).
His current contract with the Belgian club is set to run out in the summer of 2025. Thus, Everton will have to make a big offer if they want to bring Lang to Goodison Park next year.
Is Lang The Right Choice For Lampard?
Lang can find space for himself to get a few shots in on-target. He has got the vision to create some inviting chances for others around him and can make a few dangerous runs with the ball on the attacking end of the field.
The Dutch talent is primarily a left-sided winger but can also play as a right-winger or act as a centre-forward down the middle if his manager asks him to do so.
At 23, Lang will only get better in the coming seasons as long as he continues to develop his all-around game with each year. We can expect Lang to bring some much-needed firepower to Frank Lampard‘s attack at Goodison Park and increase competition for places within his Everton squad.
Therefore, Lampard should consider going all out for Lang as he will be a great choice for the Toffees to consider this January or at the end of this campaign. However, there are some question marks over whether he would be able to cope with the physical nature and high intensity of English football. Still, the pros outweigh the cons of recruiting Lang as he ticks all the right boxes in terms of what Lampard demands from his wide players.
