Everton fans react as Digne deal edges closer

Loads of Everton fans have been reacting to the latest transfer news, as a move for Lucas Digne seems to be edging closer.

According to reports in Spain, Everton representatives are in Barcelona trying to close the deal for Digne.

The French left back has been heavily linked with a move to replace Leighton Baines, and the fact that the Toffees have sent a team to Catalonia to close the deal is surely good news, with a deal likely to reach €16m (£14.2m).

Marco Silva and Marcel Brands have plenty of work left to do this summer, as Silva is desperate to inject some pace and youth into the side.

The big money arrival of Richarlison will certainly do that, and signing Digne as well would completely transform the Toffees’ left flank.

The 24 year-old has already played for Barcelona, PSG and and Roma, so he certainly knows what it means to play for a big club.

The 5 ft 10 ace would be a direct replacement for the ageing Baines, and fans have been reacting as their transfer business finally heats up.
