Liverpool transfer target wants first-team football ahead of Euro 2016

Posted by

PSG star Lucas Digne wants to be playing first-team football at a big club ahead of Euro 2016 according to his agent Mikkel Beck, amid links to Liverpool, reports the Daily Express.

The 22-year-old has found it hard to play regularly at the Parc des Princes, making just 29 appearances in Ligue 1 over the last two seasons. With France playing the next European Championships on home soil, players close to the squad will be desperate for opportunities to win a place at the tournament.

“It’s simple, there are Euros at the end of the season and Lucas will no longer waste time,” said Beck.

“He wants to re-join the France squad for Euro 2016. And that can only happen with game time. He must be able to play in a big club and, above all, to have a starting spot. Otherwise, it’s not worth leaving PSG.”

This could be good news for the Merseyside outfit, although they do face competition from West Ham United and Roma [Tuttomercatoweb via Metro]. The Reds are keen on the left-back after a disappointing debut season from Alberto Moreno and a seeming lack of confidence in Jose Enrique. While the Hammers seem far less in need of a full-back after Aaron Cresswell’s impressive performances in the last campaign.

Liverpool have already made many signings this summer as they look to improve on the sixth-placed Premier League finish of last time round.

Danny Ings, James Milner, Roberto Firmino, Joe Gomez, Adam Bogdan, and Christian Benteke have all arrived at Anfield, and manager Brendan Rodgers will be under pressure to turn them in to a winning side in order to challenge for the Champions League qualification places.
