Lucas Digne

Paris Saint-Germain’s young star has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Paris Saint-Germain’s Lucas Digne is being linked with a move to the Premier League.

The Frenchman has rarely been involved with the French champions this season with experienced fullback Maxwell the first-team regular, and perhaps a move away from the capital is just what the doctor orders.

But what do Spurs and Liverpool fans know about the French U21 star?

Here are five facts about him…

1) Lucas Digne is a 20-year-old left-back who joined Le Parisiens for a reported €15m fee from fellow French side Lille last summer.

2) He was born in a small city called Meaux and shares his birthday with famous French Astronomer Pierre Puiseux.

3) The youngster made his professional debut on the 26 October 2011, during Lille’s 3-1 cup victory over Sedan.

4) He has represented France at all youth levels and was a part of France’s U20 squad that won the U20 World Cup in July 2013.

5) Digne has started just nine Ligue 1 games this season, after starting more than 40 for Lille in the previous two campaigns.
