Lucas Digne shows Tottenham he’s the man they need

Tottenham Hotspur returned to winning ways in the Premier League on Monday evening, beating Everton 1-0.

Spurs managed to put daylight between the sides in the table with the result, and keep themselves in contention for Europe.

The only goal of the game came courtesy of Michael Keane putting into his own net in the first half, with Spurs able to hold out for all three points.

It’s back to the drawing board for Everton, who couldn’t follow up their 2-1 victory over Leicester City last week.

One man who could hold his head high in the defeat to Spurs though, was Lucas Digne.

The full-back was highly impressive at left-back once again, offering both defensive solidity and an attacking threat for the visitors.

 

Despite being on the losing side, he certainly outshone his opposite number Ben Davies.

TBR’s View – Spurs should consider Digne move

Spurs were actually linked with a move for Digne last year by The Daily Star, and the north London club could do a lot worse than to sign the World Cup winner after another great season at Goodison Park.

Davies is largely dependable, but Digne is arguably a cut above the Welshman and his potential arrival would likely bolster the Tottenham backline.

After arriving for just £18 million in the summer of 2018 from Barcelona (BBC Sport), Spurs would surely have to spend big to get him, but him being Premier League-proven should surely convince Daniel Levy to open the checkbook.

Carlo Ancelotti’s recent comments (Telegraph) would suggest Everton would put up a major fight to keep him, but Spurs surely have to at least test the waters.
