Liverpool size up deal for left back

Lucas Digne - Left-back

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is set to open talks with Lille over the signing of defender Lucas Digne, according to the Sunday People.

The 19 year old left back is one of Europe’s most promising young defenders having impressed over the past 18 months in Ligue 1.

The French under-19 international could cost the Merseyside club just £8million as the French club know they need to sell in order to bring in new faces of their own this summer.

Kop boss Rodgers wants to add at least two defenders to his squad this summer after an inconsistent season at the back leaving question marks over the future of current first choice left back Jose Enrique.

Liverpool want to do their business early this summer after leaving too late 12 months ago and so a deal to bring Digne to Anfield could be thrashed out within a few weeks leaving Rodgers to focus on signing a centre back.
