Everton would reportedly require Danny Rose plus cash in order to let defender Lucas Digne move to north London this summer – but would it be a good deal?
The Daily Star write that Spurs were interested in Digne before he joined the Toffees last summer and will re-ignite their interest ahead of the 2019/20 season.
The 25-year-old enjoyed a successful debut campaign In England, winning the Merseyside club’s Player of the Year award following an £18m move from Barcelona.
The left-back is known to be equally adept at attacking as defending his own goal, providing four goals and four assists last term.
He also possesses quality in dead-ball situations and was often entrusted with corner-taking duties, something that Spurs could be in need of should Christian Eriksen complete a move to Real Madrid.
The French international is also comfortable on the ball and happy to play both short and long passes, something which would help Spurs when playing on the counter-attack.
Rose has had an indifferent campaign and has been linked with a move away himself this summer, and a freshening up of a squad in the left-back area could be what the club need in order to progress.
Digne, a man who has represented Barcelona, Roma and Paris Sain-Germain, would represent a fantastic option and may not command such a hefty wage as other options of his calibre.
Given his age he is also likely to have many years left in him at the top level, meaning he can become one of the young squad that drive Spurs forward over the coming seasons.
