Many Everton fans have been discussing an update about Lucas Digne that recently emerged on social media.
The Times’ correspondent Paul Joyce has recently reported that the Toffees are now preparing to offer the left-back a new contract. An article written by the journalist has claimed that this is an attempt from Everton to ward off potential suitors for the Frenchman amidst reports linking him with a move. The defender is expected to get improved terms in the new deal and Everton are hoping he will sign the deal after he was linked with a move to Manchester City (as per the Times).
Is Digne the best left-back in the Premier League?
Digne is currently out injured and could be out well into the New Year too, but Carlo Ancelotti has already revealed that his rehab is going very well indeed (as per the Times). Digne is currently valued at £29.70m.
Digne arrived at Goodison Park from Barcelona in the summer of 2018 for a fee of £18 million. Since arriving at the club, he has made 87 appearances in all competitions for the Toffees while picking up 17 assists and a total of five goals (as per Transfermarkt).
Many Everton fans were raving about this update and they took to Twitter to make their opinion clear about Digne’s potential new deal.

Excellent news. One of – if not the – most important players at the club and should have a contract that reflects that. One of the best left backs in Europe. https://t.co/Dy1bT4KQpP
