Chelsea prioritising loan signing of Lucas Digne

L’Équipe have moved to confirm reporting from Italy and England yesterday that Premier League side Chelsea are prioritising a loan move for 28-year-old French international left-back Lucas Digne in January.

Following the injury to Ben Chilwell, Thomas Tuchel wants cover in this area – Digne has fallen out with Rafa Benitez, but it is thought that Everton would want a permanent sale at around the £25m mark in order to do business.

Chelsea only want a loan – likely a situation that may only begin to decant in the final days of the window.
