Reports in France today claim Liverpool are in talks with PSG over their talented young left back Lucas Digne.
French newspaper La Parisien report that the Reds have made an enquiry about the 21 year old who is unsettled due to a lack of playing time behind first choice left back Maxwell. Digne has been linked with LFC regularly over the past couple of years and is very highly rated in his homeland.
The Reds need urgent help at both full back spots as young Spanish pair Javier Manquillo and Alberto Moreno both failed to impress in their debut season in England, Jose Enrique spends more time posting selfies on twitter than he does on the field while Glen Johnson will leave when his contract expires at the end of this month.
Digne would appear to fit the bill nicely. He joined PSG from Lille two years ago for £10m and has eight caps for France, but with the European Championships at the end of the season he cannot afford to be sat on the bench. His situation is not too dissimilar to that which resulted in Mamadou Sakho making the switch from the French capital to Merseyside two summers ago.
Meanwhile, it's claimed that Dani Alves’ decision to remain at Barca may lead to Manchester United reigniting their interest in Reds’ target Nathaniel Clyne. Liverpool recently had a £10m bid rejected for the England full back and it looked like they were the only horse in the race after United dropped their interest in him.
Southampton are holding out for nearer £15m and if United’s reported change of heart is accurate then that will help drive the price up. Will the Reds take United on or will they walk away and blame a lack of Champions League football?
Burnley’s Kieran Trippier could be a fall back option. He’s been heavily linked with Spurs this summer and has a reported buy out clause of just £3.5m.
