REPORTS: Arsenal step up their pursuit of 22-year-old attacking midfielder

Without any doubts, Arsenal football club were one of the few busy Premier League clubs during the just concluded summer transfer window before it was shut last month.

The North London club are hellbent on competing with the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea for more trophies under manager Mikel Arteta and have completed the signings of several stars including Ben White.

However, that has not quite worked well so far as the Gunners are currently in 11th position on the Premier League table heading into the international break.

It is believed that manager Mikel Arteta wants to further strengthen his attacking options next year and has been linked with a move for Club Brugge forward Noa Lang.

The 22-year-old Netherlands International, who left Ajax to join Club Brugge on an initial loan with obligation to make the signing permanent on July 1 2021 has been quite impressive for Club Brugge since he made the move.

The young attacking midfielder was particularly influential in the 2020/2021 season, where he scored 17 goals and provided 11 assists in 38 appearances in all competitions.

Noa Lang has also started the 2021/2022 season on a strong note, scoring four goals and providing four assists in 13 appearances for Club Brugge so far.

His excellent performances in attack is said to have caught the attention of Arsenal and according to reports from The Sun, the Emirates side are now making moves to bring Noa Lang to London.

It is believed that manager Mikel Arteta wants to strengthen an area that already consist of the likes of Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith-Rowe and view Noa Lang as a needed addition to the squad when the transfer window opens.

That said, it remains to be seen if Club Brugge will be interested in offloading the attacking midfielder as they see him as an indispensable member of the team.
