Arsenal turn their attention to Dutch attacker after missing out on Raphinha

Arsenal has made Club Brugge winger, Noa Lang their Plan B after their failed swoop for Raphinha, according to Fichajes.net.

The Gunners were keen to add the Leeds man to their team in this transfer window, but reports claim Chelsea has hijacked the transfer.

He will now join the Blues and Arsenal has been left with almost no choice but to find another winger.

The report claims Mikel Arteta wants one so that he can rotate Bukayo Saka and give the England international some time to rest during the season.

Lang had a fine campaign at Brugge after chipping in with 12 assists and 7 goals from 31 league appearances.

He can better those figures at a bigger club and a move to Arsenal offers him the chance to achieve that.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Raphinha is a big miss, but we have to move on and find another attacker to add to our squad.

Lang looks decent, and at 23, he is at an age where he can get better with some fine coaching.

If Arteta believes the former Ajax man can do a job for his team, then we can trust the manager’s judgement.

This is because his signings since he became the club’s manager have been mainly impactful.

  1. Slightly disappointed we have missed out on Raphinha because contrary to the general consensus, I do think we need cover/competition for Saka to help push us on to the next level. However this could be a blessing in disguise, that we are not forking out a vast amount of money, leaving less funds for other priority positions (DM/CM,LB). Maybe we should look at cheaper alternatives who wouldn’t necessarily bench Saka(which is a concern for a large section of fans) like:
    Ismaili Sarr
    Lesandro Trossard
    Cody Gapko
    Emmanuel Dennis
    Moussa Diaby

  2. The only player I wish AFC signs that will make my season.
    I watch all his matches and also his YouTube videos .
    He is just a player that needs a coaching to improve the end product .

    I believe Mikel should be able to improve that like he did Martinelli

    I’m in for Noa Lang 💯

  3. Raphinha was RW. This guy is LW. The thinking behind Raphinha surely was to provide cover/competition for Saka so he doesnt have to start every game. Dont think we going after this guy

    1. He can play both positions. He is versatile and quicker footed that Saka .
      And he has flair and the skill set to make it in the epl.

      What I know is that the guy is destined for greatness.

      1. i dont like all the position swapping. I know it’s theoretical anways. But ppl want Lisandro playing CB/LB/CM, and Lang being a RW. Vieira maybe a CM? Definitely easier to switch a winger to the other flank, and maybe I’m just being hypercritical about this, idk. I like when teams buy players that play in the postition they are best at. There are jack-of-all-trade players out there, but I dont see a consistent history of either Vieiera, or Lisandro being those type of players.

  4. Yesterday after yet another warning about insulting other readers, you had 3 comments.
    One said ….this little Apologist(lol)
    One said… you trifling hypocrite
    One said….get over yourself Goofster!!

    So from now on, every single one of your comments will be moderated first. If you carry on baiting other readers and ignoring my rules you will disappear completely. I will not get into any back and forth with your childish bickering. This is seriously the end of the conversation in public.

    1. I been saying that for ages. Zaha is an Arsenal fan hence he never went to T. Hotpotch when they were chasing him.

      1. @The Zanzibarbarian. I have asked for this many times in here. I am always told “this ship has sailed long ago”.
        Zaha is IMO a brilliant winger.

  5. Noa lang is very Versatile, plays on both wings and he is good for cover, for me Raphina is just a right winger and nothing else but Noa lang is comfortable on both side but was play more from the left as he is right footed.

  6. @TRVL
    Do not mind the Admin, he suspended my previous account for a lifetime. He doesn’t forgive, He acts like he owns the world.

    Admin comment . Deleted another idiot…

    1. Do you call it “enlightened” when someone continually insults other Arsenal fan?

      Òf course you will now be moderated if you believe that is okay.

      And in actual fact I DO own this little part of the world, and I would like some decorum in it, thankyou.

    2. Man tbh he owns the site and doesn’t need to be harassed. Admin can do what they want, man go to another site if your gonna keep popping at Pat for trying to keep this site cival as it’s becoming a gunning match with everyone.

      We all have opinions, respect them and do so with respect and abit of decency, as we’re all here for the club & all entitled to our opinions. I love this site and have done many articles and this sort of crap ruins every read.

  7. I would prefer Zaha, yes he’s 29yrs old but still has a lot of fight in him and can play anywhere in the attack region,

    He would instantly improve the team, he would also get enough rotation too, so injuries shouldn’t be much worry,

    We either get Zaha or Coady Gakpo,

    We could add Gallagher to top up our signing for the season, if Lisandro doesn’t work out.

    We should also introduce our U23s for the RB and LB positions.

  8. It might have something to do with you regularly trolling other commenters on this blog. There’s no benefit in being a good writer if you’re continuously unpleasant so I suggest you start your own blog.

    1. Let’s go for Noa Lang, the lad is talented and cheap(no need to break the bank).

      We need numbers and players who can perform in Epl, Europa, FA and Carrabao Cup.

  9. Maybe Noa Lang could be a good signing, but he has no experience with the Premier League. The question will be, how long time will he need to adapt?

  10. I like Lang a lot, and I’m sure he’ll do well, he’s got a similar profile to Pepe, but more arrogance to push his ability and impose himself, succeed where Pepe failed.
    However I still feel Gakpo would be the best option now, I’d like to buy within the prem as its a jump some coming in just can’t take but there’s not many options, Zaha is not one for me, age goes against him now.

  11. Zaha would be a good buy because he creats scoring chances & instills fear in opposition defenders . That’s where Pepe failed.He gets us penalties. He scores goals on his own. At 29 yrs , age doesn’t matter for good players just look at Cristiano & Barca are eager to buy Lewandowski ( 33) & give him a 3 year contract. If we don’t have good fighters in our team, I bet you we will finish fifth or sixth this season.

  12. We have scouted Noah Lang and he was deemed a low priority due to the baggage that comes with him. I would be very surprised if we have a change of heart, many clubs are giving him a wide berth.

  13. I prefer Emmanuel Dennis cis he know more about playing in d premier league moreso he is better than Raphinha statistically last season
