LEEDS UNITED are reportedly targeting highly-rated Club Brugge winger Noa Lang – but face competition from Sevilla.
The 22-year-old Dutch star – who is playing his trade in Belgium – has attracted attention from across Europe after scoring 17 goals and providing 11 assists in 38 games last season.

Reputable Italian Journalist Fabrizio Romano confirmed Leeds’ interest in the winger on his Twitch stream, saying: “He’s a target, they are talking with his agents but there is no deal agreed or any officials bids yet with Club Brugge.”
According to ElDesmarque, Sevilla are also targeting Lang despite swapping Bryan Gil for Tottenham’s Erik Lamela.
However, Lang’s price is an issue for the Spanish club with Brugge wanting £17-£21million for their star man.
Sevilla still have good options in the wide areas should they opt against moving for Lang.
Lamela, Suso, Lucas Ocampos and Oussama Idrissi can all play out wide.
The report also states that Sevilla had planned to make a move for Lang during the January winter transfer window, but decided not to.
Lang isn’t the only young European talent Leeds are eyeing in the summer transfer window.
The Whites are reportedly interested in signing Sampdoria star Mikkel Damsgaard, who scored a fantastic free-kick in the Euro 2020 semi-final loss to England.

The eight-cap international had a steady first season in Italy, making 35 Serie A appearances but scoring just twice.
It’s thought Sampdoria will accept an offer of £30m for the Danish winger.
