Leeds United have been warned that signing Noa Lang could cause more problems than he’s worth ahead of the January transfer window.
This has been suggested by the Whites presenter Ger Lynch who has been speaking on the Leeds United – The View YouTube channel.
According to recent reports, Leeds have a chance of securing their long-term target from Club Brugge with Fabrizio Romano believing he could be available for €30m-€35m (£26m-£30m).
The Belgian has enjoyed some recent success in the last two seasons with Brugge with double-figure goal involvements in both the 2020/21 and 2021/22 league campaigns (via Transfermarkt).
However, Lynch has shared his concerns surrounding the 23-year-old at a time when Leeds find themselves in the mix of another potential relegation scrap:
“A player like Lang going into that mix [Leeds squad] has the potential to mess things up a little bit. And we just don’t need it.
“So I think that a player like Lang would cause Leeds a lot of problems. A lot of problems. I would stay as far away from Noa Lang as we possibly can,” Lynch said.
TIF Thoughts on Lynch’s comments…
Not only is Lang tipped to be an issue off the pitch, but his form this season has in no way suggested he would be able to provide Marsch with an upgrade on the field.
Do you want to see Noa Lang at Leeds?
In his 12 league appearances this season, the winger has only been able to find the back of the net twice as well as providing two assists (via Transfermarkt).
Leeds have not had too many issues in finding the back of the net in recent weeks, but extra help would surely be happily accepted by Marsch ahead of the run-in.
But at around £30m, we are not convinced Lang is the best option for Leeds and there is already clear concerns among some of the Whites fans.
