On July 30th, we covered a report from Mundo Deportivo, who claimed Lucas Digne has travelled to Europe after leaving Barcelona’s preseason camp in the United States.

Today’s edition of Catalan newspaper Sport claims the France international will join the Toffees today ‘after rapid and successful negotiation’.

The deal could be formalised in a ‘matter of hours’.

The 25-year-old has already said his goodbyes to the staff and players of the La Liga winners. He will travel to Liverpool today to undergo his medical after all three parties involved reached a final agreement on Monday.

Everton will pay €20m plus €2m in variables for Digne. He wanted to leave the Camp Nou but wasn’t initially keen on joining Marco Silva’s side this summer. This is one of the reasons there was a delay in reaching an agreement with Everton.

The player’s environment were waiting to see if they would receive a better offer from elsewhere. That didn’t happen, and Everton looks a good fit for the player.
