Crystal Palace are thought to be interested in Everton left-back Lucas Digne ahead of the January window, and as to be expected, a number of Eagles fans have been giving their thoughts to the news on social media.
According to French outlet Jeunes Footeux, the Eagles and Patrick Vieira are keen on his services, with the defender reportedly involved in an altercation with Toffees manager Rafael Benitez earlier this month.
Do you want Digne at Palace?
No, not needed!
Yes, get him in!
Benitez looks set to add to his left-back ranks in January by bringing in Vitaliy Mykolenko in a deal worth a reported £17.9m, which could mean that Digne becomes surplus to requirements at Goodison Park.
The defender currently earns £110,000 per week on Merseyside, and if he were to join Palace for a similar pay packet, he would instantly become the third-highest paid player at Selhurst Park behind Wilfried Zaha and Christian Benteke.
Palace fans react
@CPFCtransfersHQ shared the story regarding Palace’s interest in Digne via Twitter. Here is what these Eagles supporters had to say in reply, with some mixed responses and one labelling a possible deal as ‘unbelievable’.
“Absolutely no chance. But my god what a signing that would be”
“Would destroy the wage bill”
“Would be an UNBELIEVABLE signing”
“I can’t lie we would probs win the league if we signed him, no disrespect to Mitchell who has been excellent but Digne is a level above”
“Can we maybe get a new RB before LB? Ferguson will never play a minute for this club, Clyne will no longer improve and Ward is out of his depth at RB in the Prem now”
“I don’t get why, he would obviously slot straight in but when Mitchell is looking good, you’ve got Hannam coming through, it’s bizarre, need to spend on backup midfielders and centre halfs really”
