West Ham United surely should be in a strong position to beat Leeds United to the signing of Noa Lang this summer.
Lang even confirmed that Leeds’ interest in signing him was concrete when speaking to HLN at the start of the month.
Both West Ham and the Whites are in desperate need of bolstering their attacking ranks at the London Stadium and Elland Road respectively this summer.
Lang would be a fine addition for either side what with his exhilarating playing style, incredible ability and truly frightening potential.
We believe that West Ham are in a very strong position to beat Leeds to Lang’s signature, however…
West Ham should beat Leeds to Noa Lang
The Hammers are in a far stronger position than the Whites at the moment.
David Moyes guided his West Ham team to a seventh placed finish last season and we subsequently earned qualification for European football for the second consecutive season (play-off pending).
Meanwhile, Leeds struggled to avoid relegation down to the Championship.
Surely the Hammers are more of an attractive prospect for a highly talented youngster arriving in the Premier League from the continent. We certainly have more chance of finishing inside the top six than Leeds do this season.
We think that the Club Brugge ace would be a very useful addition for whichever club wins the race for his signature this summer.
In the 2020/21 campaign, he bagged 18 goals and 11 assists in 37 games in all competitions for Club Brugge (Transfermarkt).
And last season, Lang racked up nine goals and 15 assists in 46 games (Transfermarkt).
The five-capped Holland International has been described as an ‘extraordinary’ player by Smarter Scout.
The talented young Dutchman can play anywhere along the front-line. He is absolutely rapid and possesses exceptional technical ability.
Lang is said to be available for around €25 million (£21 million) according to Calciomercato.it. The 23-year-old’s talent and potential make him more than worth that kind of transfer fee.
And West Ham should easily be able to trump Leeds in the race to sign Noa Lang this summer.
