Plenty of Everton fans have been slamming a possible transfer swap involving Lucas Digne and Adrien Rabiot after Calciomercato (via The Gwladys Street) reported that Juventus could ask for the left-back in exchange if the Merseyside club follow up their interest in the midfielder.
Would you rather keep Digne or sign Rabiot?
As per the outlet, the Italian giants value both of the players at around €25 million, which equates to roughly £22.4 million.
Comparing both men in their respective domestic leagues so far in the 2019/20 season, Digne has achieved more assists, and also averages more tackles, clearances, shots and key passes per game, according to Whoscored.
Yes, they both play in completely different roles, but the fact that Digne tops Rabiot in several key defensive and offensive stats suggests that Juve’s valuations may arguably be mismatched.
Therefore, if Maurizio Sarri and co were to propose this deal in the upcoming summer transfer window, then the Toffees may be wise not to accept.
These EFC supporters slammed the possible transfer swap on Twitter, and it seems as if the majority would like to keep their 26-year old French defender which is unsurprising given his stats this term combined with Rabiot’s inability to make much of an impact in Turin:
Rather buy Allan and Gana and keep digne

Talk of Chilwell worth £60m and they think Digne is worth €25m, madness. I’d only accept that deal if they gave us that Portuguese fella up front as wel

Is that £25 million just for his left leg?
