Lucas Digne To Snub Liverpool For PSG

Lille full back Lucas Digne looks set to join French Champions Paris Saint Germain despite interest from a number of Premier League clubs including Liverpool.

According to talkSPORT, the defender looks poised on signing for the Parisian club for a reported £12 million.

Apparently, the player is due in Paris this week to complete a medical at club.

Liverpool had been interested in bringing the under-20 international to Anfield but the possible move has broken down since the player has opted to stay in France.

Brendan Rodgers was looking to sign Digne as a possible long-term replacement for current full back Jose Enrique.

The defender is already fairly experienced despite only being 19 years old. The youngster has already made 40 appearances in Ligue 1 for Lille.

Despite renewing his contract at Lille until 2016, it seems as though the player is set to depart after only playing two whole seasons with the senior squad.

If Digne signs at PSG he will follow Edison Cavani who also chooses to sign for the French club over the Premier League.
