Report: Liverpool look to add 22-year-old Lucas Digne to their ranks

Lucas Digne

PSG defender Lucas Digne is reportedly a summer transfer target for Liverpool.

According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool are tracking Paris Saint Germain's Lucas Digne as they look to finalise their summer transfer activity. 

Reports suggest that, although Brendan Rodgers' squad looks well balanced ahead of the new season, there is one area that he may yet look to bolster: the left-back position.

After an unconvincing debut season, the Northern Irishman is yet to invest his full faith in Alberto Moreno, while summer signing Joe Gomez is unlikely to be ready for a full campaign of Premier League action. 

Digne struggled for game time last season, making just 15 appearances for the Ligue 1 outfit, behind first choice left-back Maxwell.

Nonetheless, he proved his ability when given the opportunity - winning 54% of his attempted tackles and 67% of his aerial contests - while he also completed 88% of his total passes.

Ahead of next summer's European championships, the Frenchman - who has already earned eight caps for his country - will be hoping to feature in enough matches to secure a place in Didier Deschamps' squad.

With Rodgers aiming to have depth in each position, this could well be a move that suit all parties.
