According to reports, Arsenal are interested in signing Noa lang, a Club Brugge striker, in the January transfer window.
Lang has been a big draw in the Belgian top flight. He has scored three goals and assisted four times in his 10 appearances thus far this season.
The 22-year-old’s decent start to the campaign follows an impressive debut season for Brugge in which he recorded 17 goals and 11 assists.
Arsenal shelled out around £150million in the summer to sign Ben White, Aaron Ramsdale, Martin Odegaard, Nuno Tavares, Albert Lokongo and Takehiro Tomiyasu.
However, they were unable to bring in a striker. This means that a move for Lang could be in January. Voetbal24 reports the Gunners are preparing a £25m bid for the Dutch international.
Arsenal wanted to wait until the end, when Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are out of contract.
The Gunners’ timeline has been accelerated by AC Milan keeping an eye on Lang.
Mikel Arteta, who managed Lang’s fiery demeanor at Ajax, will be managing Lang’s move to north London if he does.
Erik ten Ha, Ajax manager, fought with the forward after he won a 4-3 Dutch Cup victory against Telstar in December 2019.

Lang can be irritable and has trouble with Ten Hag. However, he is very talented. Philippe Clement, his manager at the moment admitted that Lang will not be around long.
“I’m realistic when it comes to things like this,”Clement stated.
“If there’s an impossible-to-refuse offer for him, we won’t be able to stop him in January.
“I’d rather he finish the season, win a title and be important. But we’ll see what happens in January.”
