Everton’s left back hunt is finally heating up, and loads of fans have been reacting to a reported £22m bid for Barcelona’s Lucas Digne.
According to The Mirror, Everton have offered just over £22million for Digne as the Toffees continue to search for a replacement for Leighton Baines.
Kieran Tierney was heavily linked a few weeks back, but Celtic’s price tag seems to have killed that deal, and attentions have now turned to Digne.
The 25 year-old is unsettled at Barcelona, having been unable to force his way into the team, eventually costing him his place in France’s World Cup squad.
However, the report does say the Catalan giants want to keep the former PSG ace as an understudy to Jordi Alba, perhaps why the Toffees have decided to go big with their first bid.
Marco Silva and Marcel Brands have a lot of work to do transforming the squad at Goodison, and injecting some pace and youth down that left flank is clearly the first order of business.
Adding Digne and Richarlison would do just that, but fans are split on the move after seeing the price tag, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
for that fee, would rather sign Tierney.

I don’t understand not giving Antonee Robinson a shot at LB. He’s been solid for Bolton on loan last season and his appearances for the USMNT this year.
