Good News for fans of Everton F.C. and the British Premier League.
Information reaching our News Desk has it that the transfer of Lucas Digne from F.C. Barcelona to Everton F.C is a done deal. The English team have now officially confirmed the deal after some weeks of uncertainty.
Even though the Everton Management have not been particularly busy on the transfer market this summer, they have been secretly working hard behind the scenes to land the Barca defender who they believe will bring some stability to the teams defence line.
This they believe, will help in their quest to force their way back into European competition this coming season.
Digne is moving to Everton after failing to stamp down a place for himself in the Barcelona starting line-up. This switch is expected to help him get more playing time and put his football career back on track as quickly as possible.
It will be recalled that the player was signed by F.C. Barcelona sometime in 2016 after spending some time at Paris Saint-Germain and then a loan spell with AS Roma.
The 25-year-old defender will be joining the Premier League team on a five-year deal that is believed to be worth around £18 million, although that could eventually rise to £20 million depending on some other factors.
