Lucas Digne is at Everton in his second season and has already secured a permanent place in the side. It was this growth that drew Chelsea and Manchester City’s attention.
After he left Barcelona because he didn’t have too many minutes with players like Jordi Alba, his progression has been upward.
During the 18-19 season the left-back became an Everton regular and has an average of over 33 games per season.
He has already accrued 33 in the current season, all of them as a starter, and has provided four assists and one goal.
Lucas Digne is thus one of the most valuable assets of Everton.
But, even though he has a deal until June 30th, 2023, ESPN has heard that the player has attracted the interest of two Premier League big clubs: Chelsea and Manchester City.
Digne may be an alternative to en Chilwell, who has also been linked to these teams, but might not end up being that cheap of an choice given how important he is to Everton.
