Liverpool lead race to sign £8.5m France defender

Liverpool are leading the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain ace Lucas Digne, according to reports from the Daily Star.

Digne is just one of the PSG players linked with an exit in recent weeks as the Ligue-1 side prepare to overhaul their squad this summer, with Yohan Cabaye, Ezequiel Lavezzi, and Edinson Cavani all rumoured to leave.

And the Reds look like the favourites to sign the defender, who is also being tracked by Serie A giants AS Roma and Premier League rivals Arsenal.

PSG have set an asking price of £8.5million for the France international, who Kop manager Brendan Rodgers sees as the perfect player to rotate with Alberto Moreno at left-back.

Liverpool have already completed three deals this summer, signing James Milner from Manchester City, Danny Ings from Burnley, and Adam Bogdan from Bolton Wanderers.

The Merseyside club are also reportedly close to securing the move for Charlton Athletic ace Joe Gomez in a deal worth £3.5million.
