According to TEAMtalk journalist James Marshment, Los Blancos are unwilling to reignite their interest in the Dutchman even if they don’t sign Charles De Ketelaere.
If they can’t bring in Lang’s teammate, they will turn to PSG striker Arnuad Kailimuendo and not pay the £21.2m fee. fabrice romano claims Brugge will want for Lang.
When asked Twitter on whether Leeds will be looking to sign the Dutch international, Marshment wrote: “I don’t think Leeds are more keen. More likely to go for Kalimuendo if we miss De Ketelaere.
Lang will be significantly cheaper than Charles De Ketelaere and could lead the line for Leeds next season.
He has blistering pace, good ball control and the ability to find the back of the net – something Jesse Marsch would love in his striker.
Apart from scoring goals, he also brings other players into the game and creates chances for the players around him which explains his high number of assists.
He is a complete striker who is still at the dawn of his career and will only improve with time.
In terms of the speed of football, the Premier League is tailor-made for Lang to get up to speed and he will make Leeds a better team.
However, it seems most of the noise surrounding him came when Marcelo Bielsa was in charge while Marsch seems to have other players at heart.
