PSG are monitoring Everton left-back Lucas Digne, according to French outlet Le10 Sport.
The Parisians, who missed out to Lille on the Ligue 1 title recently, are said to be keen to strengthen their defence and have identified the 27-year-old as a possible option.
Could Digne really go back to PSG?
Digne has previously spent three years in the French capital, as PSG signed him from Lille back in 2013 for a fee of £13.5m. In 2016, having spent time on loan at Roma, Digne moved to Barcelona for £14.85m, and Everton then shelled out £18.2m to bring him to Goodison Park two years later.
He has gone to rack up a century of appearances for the Toffees, contributing 18 assists in that time. Among his team-mates, only Gylfi Sigurdsson (10) and James Rodriguez (eight) set up more goals than Digne (seven) in the 2020/21 season, despite him playing as a left-back.

This may not be the only business conducted between PSG and Everton. According to Fabrizio Romano, the two clubs remain in talks over a permanent deal for Toffees striker Moise Kean, who spent last season on loan at the Parc des Princes.
Twitter account Everton News Feed relayed the report on Digne, and here’s the pick of the reactions from Toffees supporters.
Everton fans flock to Digne-PSG claim
“I guess we’re getting 120 million from PSG in the summer then.”
“We should endeavor to keep Lucas Digne at all costs unless we receive an unbelievable offer. Really like the lad.”
“If they give us 60 million up front for him then they have a deal. Otherwise they can monitor all they want.”
“Offer the Mbappe guy in return and we’ll talk”
“Wouldn’t surprise me if he wanted the move. Wouldn’t blame him either.”
“Well that’s him off then”
