The left-back will put pen to paper on a five-year contract with the Premier League outfit. The Merseyside club and Barcelona have already agreed a deal for the 25-year-old and Everton will pay €20m plus variables to secure the fullback’s signature.

Digne will be another recognised left-back in the squad after Leighton Baines and the former will compete with the 33-year-old for a place in the starting lineup.
