James Pearce on €25m dribbling sensation that Liverpool could sign according to data and analysis – terrorised PSG In CL

Liverpool are interested in Noa Lang, the forward that terrorised PSG in the Champions League group stages, reports James Pearce.

The journalist penned an article alongside John Muller for the Athletic and looked at a list of targets for the Reds and Lang, a player that hasn’t previously featured very high on the list of names linked with a move to Anfield, is an interesting option.

The forward, valued at €25million (€21.1m) by Club Brugge, was superb against the Parisians when they first met in Europe and his direct dribbling and close control made life difficult for Mauricio Pochettino’s superstar side.

Noa Lang.

“Lang is a really exciting attacking talent,” James Pearce wrote for The Athletic.

“His main skill is dribbling around the edges of a defensive block and then finding the unexpected ball into, over or through the defence to create a chance out of nothing.

“He’s very good at beating defenders one-v-one and provides vision and creativity in abundance.

“He doesn’t finish a lot of moves himself as he is more likely to set up team-mates by dribbling from left to right.”

Noa Lang

Lang, who scored 17 goals and assisted 11 last season for Brugge, has been in good form this term and will have several sides tracking him closely ahead of the summer transfer window and I’m sure Club Brugge will be eagerly anticipating cashing in on him.

He seems like just the type of player that FSG would agree to sign for Jurgen Klopp due to the low fee and given that he’s just 22 years old, he has most of his career ahead of him which makes him a financial asset for the Reds should they sign him.

The Americans like signing players that can make an immediate impact that also have huge potential.

While some fans would prefer to see the likes of Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe arrive at the club, Lang would also demand much lower wages which will be a major positive for FSG.
