Club Brugge forward Noa Lang is attracting interest from both Arsenal and Leeds United.
Arsenal are reportedly ready to table a bid of up to £25million for Dutch talent Noa Lang, reports have claimed. The 22-year-old has just been handed his senior Netherlands debut by manager Louis van Gaal after forcing his way into the picture with his performances in Belgium with Club Brugge.
The tricky winger, who has drawn comparisons to Neymar due to his creative streak and dribbling skills, only joined Brugge on a permanent deal from Ajax this summer following a successful loan spell last season.
Lang came through the ranks at Ajax after spending eight years as part of Feyenoord’s academy before making the switch to Amsterdam in 2013.
Yet he would manage just nine senior appearances for the Dutch giants before heading out on loan to Twente and Club Brugge respectively.
However, Ajax now look to have let a potential superstar slip through the net with Lang now attracting interest from the Premier League.
Leeds were sniffing around in the summer transfer window before eventually moving to sign Daniel James from Manchester United after the Red Devils re-signed Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus.
The Whites are continuing to monitor his progress though but according to Voetbal24, Arsenal are ready to make their move.
It’s claimed the Gunners are ready to spend up to £25million on the forward as they look to bolster their attacking options.
Lang fits technical director Edu and Mikel Arteta’s recruitment model, which is centered around signing players between 21 and 24, who are yet to fulfil their potential.

The report states that Club Brugge are looking for closer to £34m though in order to agree to a sale.
Ideally, the Belgian club would like to keep Lang for the rest of the season but a sizeable January offer could prove hard to refuse.
Lang made his international debut at the weekend when he was a second-half substitute in the 1-0 win in Latvia.
He was then handed a start in the 6-0 demolition of Gibraltar and provided an assist.
