Arsenal are lining up a January bid worth €30m (£25.4m) for Club Brugge winger Noa Lang, according to Voetbal24.
The Belgian website reports that the Gunners are looking to make their move in the New Year, rather than at the end of the season when they could have to battle other teams for the Dutchman’s signature.
Lang’s stock is rising fast after getting his first senior cap for the Netherlands in a World Cup qualifier against Latvia last week.
Club Brugge are aware of the interest in their player, with AC Milan also reportedly keen on the 22-year-old, and it is believed that the Belgian club have slapped a €40m (£34m) price tag on the winger.
Whether they would accept an offer from Arsenal that is €10m (£9m) less, it remains to be seen. Lang has been in great form so far this campaign, having scored four goals and provided four assists in 13 appearances.
