Milan Nearing Agreement for Coveted Club Brugge Winger

Milan are in advanced talks to acquire Noa Lang from Club Brugge. However, the pending takeover does not allow them to conclude any deal at the moment. The recent tirade on his contract by Paolo Maldini primarily stemmed from such aspect. The front office has set up a few operations, but they can not finalize them just yet.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Rossoneri have long been chasing after the talented Dutchman. They appreciate his versatility, on top of his production. He has tallied 9 goals and 15 assists in 48 matches this season. They also laid eyes on his teammate Charles De Ketelaere. However, the negotiation is in its early stages in such case.

Milan are ready to pay €22M for Lang, giving €4M wages for the player, the outlet informs. The club has routinely completed this kind of medium-sized investment for promising youngsters in recent years. The directors are worried that the impasse could permit other suitors to thwart their plans.

According to Calciomercato, Wolfsburg inquired about Ante Rebic. His former coach Niko Kovac is eyeing a reunion. The Rossoneri could sell the forward for the right price since he is not a full-time starter. Moreover, he has dealt with multiple injuries in the last two seasons.

Our Take on Milan Pursuing Lang

The 22-year-old is already fairly established, and the fee would not be too lofty. Milan need more offensive options, especially at no.10 and on the right flank, and Lang could feature on either spot. Moreover, he would be a decent backup for Rafael Leao too. On the other hand, the fact that the club will change hands soon makes the transfer market rumors mostly premature. The new owners could massively alter previous ideas, perhaps for the better.
