Manchester City reportedly ‘like’ Everton full-back Lucas Digne

Everton full-back Lucas Digne is reportedly admired by Manchester City.

In a club-by-club guide, the Daily Mail have claimed the Frenchman is on the Citizens’ wanted list next month.

Digne, currently sidelined with an ankle injury, has been a breath of fresh air at Goodison Park since his move to the club in the summer of 2018 for a reported £18 million from Barcelona (BBC Sport).

The star has now clocked up 87 appearances for the Toffees, and scored five goals and laid on 17 assists.

He is a firm favourite with the fans for his ability to be effective in both the defending and attacking phases.

The Daily Mail say there is a ‘liking’ from Manchester City, who have seen £90,000-a-week star Benjamin Mendy (Spotrac) fail to kick on.

 

A new left-back is said to be a priority for Pep Guardiola, with Oleksandr Zinchenko being linked with a move away.

TBR’s View – Everton sitting on an asset

Digne’s current contract at Goodison expires in 2023, meaning they’re in a strong position.

They don’t need to sell and can demand a massive fee if needs be.

But realistically Everton should not even be entertaining any interest, with Digne a top-class full-back – arguably second only to Andy Robertson in the Premier League.

If anything, the Toffees should be looking to sort the former Barcelona man a new contract to show him how much they value him.
