French youngster Lucas Digne has joined Paris Saint-Germain from Lille for a fee of €15million, according to

He has been one of the most talented defenders in Europe and recently won the U20 World Cup with France by beating Uruguay.

An academy product of Lille, promoted to the senior squad in 2011-12, he became first choice for the club in 2012-13 season with his prolific performances throughout the year.

Digne was previously linked with various European heavyweights such as Arsenal, Manchester United and Inter Milan.

Reports suggested that the aforementioned clubs sent scouts to Lille to monitor the player’s progress.

A move to the capital looks ideal as the club allowed fellow left-backs Sylvain Armand and Saika Tiene depart the club.

So that left only leave one other left-back in 31-year-old veteran Maxwell at the club.

And although, he has been good in both the league and European competitions, the club sooner rather than later had to find a younger replacement.

Digne joins the clubs with big names like Edinson Cavani, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva alongside him.

Current manager Laurent Blanc have been shrewd in the signings he has made since taking charge of his new squad.

Paris Saint-Germain have set out to bring European glory to the capital city and the recent signings only provide strength to an already quality group of players.
