Manchester City could join the likes of Liverpool in the chase for Paris Saint-Germain left-back Lucas Digne, FootballDirectNews.com understands. With some doubt over the future of Gael Clichy at the Etihad Stadium, City manager Manuel Pellegrini is on the lookout for new signings in the left-back position, and has seemingly identified Digne as a promising option.
The 20-year-old only joined PSG from Lille last summer, but has not quite managed to establish himself at the Parc des Princes this season, leading to suggestions that he could go out on loan next year. Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are other interested parties from the Premier League, while Napoli are also believed to be keen on the youngster.
However, a City source has now revealed that Pellegrini is a fan of the player and could look to bring him in as well. We’ve got two left-backs in Gael and Aleksandar (Kolarov) who’ll want to be playing regularly, a club insider explained. “It looks like one might have to leave to do that, so the manager could bring in a young player like Digne, maybe on loan, to provide cover there for next season. “
