Bournemouth, Bristol City and Watford target Championship talent
Bournemouth, Bristol City and Watford are showing late interest in Wigan Athletic winger Callum Lang, according to a report from Football Insider.
The report says all three clubs in pursuit have the exciting winger high on their priority lists ahead of deadline day.
The 23-year-old was left out of Wigan’s squad on Tuesday night in their 1-1 draw with West Brom, however Wigan boss Leam Richardson has confirmed Lang needs a CT scan after the weekend’s clash with Burnley.
Lang is yet to score or provide an assist in the Championship this season, but he proved to be one of the Latics’ best performers in their title-winning campaign last time out, scoring 18 times and providing 11 assists. additional.

With Bournemouth visibly possessing the advantage, given their Premier League status, it remains to be seen if anything materializes before the window closes.
Lang is an exciting striker who is very direct and intelligent on the right wing, and he is someone who certainly has the qualities required to thrive at the top of the table.
Admittedly, it’s unclear whether a move to the Premier League would be the right next step for him, but if Bournemouth were to win the race, it wouldn’t be surprising if an immediate loan was sanctioned.
Possessing a contract that expires in 2025 and being an extremely vital part of Richardson’s Latics, it’s likely Wigan would demand a hefty fee for his services.
Something that would probably rule out the Robins, while perhaps Watford should wait to see how the Joao Pedro and Ismaila Sarr situations play out.
