GdS: Milan hoping to agree terms and close €20m deal for No.1 winger target

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are using the international break to try and get some pieces in place for the future and they are in talks over Noa Lang of Club Brugge, a report claims.

As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), there is a profile that piques their interest as an option to come in and reinforce the attack and that player is Noa Lang. The 22-year-old Dutchman came through the academy at Ajax and has become a star in Bruges, and the feeling is that he is a profile suited to the philosophy of the Rossoneri.

The winger is talent who can mature under the guidance of Pioli, and he offers some interesting versatility given he is a natural right-footer who often occupies the left wing, but can also play on the right if needed.

There have already been meetings at the Milan headquarters with the Wasserman agency, who look after Lang’s interests, but Club Brugge must be convinced to sell and they want €25m in order to let him go.

It is a figure that Maldini and Massara plan to lower through negotiations and if they were to reach an agreement with Lang’s entourage over terms, the deal could close at around €20m plus bonuses.

  1. Talented player without doubt, but there are some red flags concerning his character, professionalism, discipline and commitment. Ajax don’t sell and give up on players for no reason. Hopefully he has grown up and matured.

  2. “he is a natural right-footer who often occupies the left wing, but can also play on the right if needed.”

    Right… Same applies to Rebic but still Pioli doesn’t use him on the right side. IF Lang comes, he’ll definitely stay on the left side. The side that we’re perfectly covered already.

    PASS! Get a proper RW and stop overcrowding the left flank. Rebic is good enough and deserves MORE playing time – not less.

    1. Yes, so take this line of thought further. What could it mean? Issues with Leao’s renewal and perhaps a sale?

    1. Rebic has been terrible lately. Milan needs undoubtedly a better cover for that position as well. As for what Skop said, I think it is extremely irrelevant that argument because Botman and many other players came from Ajax, but didn’t continue there. Ajax is a team which produces many talented young players, but they can’t keep them all. Also Lang is a very versatile player. Look at his number and do some research on the player. Look why he was called by the Netherlands national football team. Rebic wasn’t even called by Croatia anymore because his level has downgraded. That’s why he even lost the position to Leao.

      1. Sven Botman was sold by Ajax to a club with thigher ambitions in a higher quality league. Going from Holland league to Belgium league is a step down. But i agree with you on Rebic. I think Milan will look to move from him, that’s why there a rumors about a potential swap with Napoli for Elmas who would be very good at CAM, even though I doubt Napoli will let him go when he is outperforming Zielinski. If they sign Lang i hope its to back up Leao. I want naturally left footed player on the right wing. Enough with this strategy of trying to fit a square peg into a round hole

        1. I do see your point. Of course, going from Ajax to the Belgian league is a downgrade for any player, but I think that league has been producing some great talents lately. Maybe Lang did wrong in the past, but he has lately done a great performance. As I told you, that’s why he was even called by the Netherlands national team which is one of the most difficult to by called by in Europe. Regarding Rebic, I think people are defending it too much, but people need to watch more Milan matches and see how his performance has downgraded. For example last match against Cagliari, Rebic was a ghost. Of course Milan needs urgently a right winger, but I think Berardi would be the best option for the team and maybe an attacker midfielder. I like other player from Brugge, Charles De Ketelaere, but it seems that other teams would get him. I don’t know. I honestly think that Milan should forget about Renato Sanches. He is good, but I don’t think that he is necessary

      2. Rebic isn’t called up to the national team because of critical comments he made in the past, not necessarily due to performance though that could also be a factor.

  3. Rebic was NOT a ghost v Cagliari:
    83 min mark, he made the absolutely beautiful pass to Calabria who should’ve scored to make it 2-0.
    84 min mark, he pressed hard like usual and caused a turnover and won a corner kick for us when most players would not have put in that kind of effort.
    85 min mark he took a nice volley shot that was deflected by a defender and gave us another corner.

    Rebic is SO MUCH better than both Messias and Saelemakers (and this past game in his limited minutes he did more than Leao did all game) — he should be starting and getting 75+ minutes per match.

  4. Another Salaemakers??? A player coming from the Belgian league would need TIME to settle in a tough league like Serie A. We need a different kind of profile on the right wing…. a quality baller who would have an instant impact… One that would raise our level instantly. Enough with these kind of players. We should go for Berardi and stop this stinginess. Don’t want another inexperienced kid. 🙄🤦🏾‍♂️
