Paris Saint-Germain boss Laurent Blanc has confirmed that defender Lucas Digne has asked to leave the club in this transfer window.
As reported by the Daily Mail, the boss of the French champions has insisted that, despite the player's situation at the club, he has been extremely professional throughout the course of the pre-season.
Digne, who is only 22-years of age, has failed to hold down a permanent place in the PSG XI over the last couple of years, but is extremely highly rated, having already starred on the international scene with France.

Unsurprisingly, then, a number of clubs have been credited with interest in his services of late, with the trio of Liverpool, Atletico Madrid and Roma all seemingly ready to land him before the start of the 2015/16 campaign.
It remains uncertain as to whether any of the interested clubs are set to step up their interest in the player in the near future, but Liverpool fans will no doubt be hoping boss Brendan Rodgers continues to improve the side after last season's disappointing campaign.

Blanc certainly isn't certain if the youngster will move on in the near future, as he told L'Equipe: "First, it is he who very clearly asked to leave.
"For now, he is with us, he is very professional, he trains very well and has prepared excellently. He has shown the results in friendlies.
"This is firstly a very good thing for him and possibly for us, should he stay with us this season."
There's no doubt about it, Liverpool have been the busiest of all the big clubs in England so far this summer, so there will have to come a time when they complete their transfer business.
Perhaps, though, landing Digne would prove a fine coup for the club, who are seemingly in need of options in the left-back position. With Jose Enrique likely to leave Anfield, Digne would act as a solid replacement, and would most definitely be seen as an investment for the long term.
Rodgers has done well in this transfer window in terms of providing a balance with experienced and upcoming stars, so Digne would be another player who could enjoy a long career on Merseyside. It's a deal the Reds should look to complete sooner rather than later.
