Following the signings of Nathaniel Clyne and Joe Gomez, Brendan Rodgers looks to continue the strengthening of his back-line with the signing of Paris Saint Germain's Lucas Digne, reports the Liverpool Echo.

The Frenchman, who recently spoke to Laurent Blanc saying he wants to find a new club to play first-team football, has been valued at £14 million and has been the subject of talks between Liverpool and PSG, held in London. 

Digne, who only appeared 15 times for the French champions last season, could be the replacement for Jose Enrique and provide competition for Alberto Moreno, after Enrique only managed four appearance last season.

This is thought to be a tempting offer as Digne has had to play backup for Maxwell at PSG.

The signing of the defender could help reduce the 48 goals Liverpool conceded last season and would almost certainly lead to the Enrique's transfer away from the club.

Blanc wants him to stay

Despite allowing talks to be held about Digne, PSG manager Laurent Blanc seems keen to hold on to the youngster.

Speaking to the press he said: “He is with us, he is very professional, he trains very well and has prepared excellently. This is a good thing for him and possibly for us, should he stay with us this season.”

Di Maria arrival imminent?

The 22-year-old has already managed eight caps for his country, despite the presence of Patrice Evra in the left-back position for France, and was part of the French world cup side that reached the quarter finals in Brazil.

The weekend-long talks between the two clubs' officials follow PSG's attempt to sign Manchester United's British record £59 million signing, Angel Di Maria who has failed to live up to the price tag, being slightly ill-suited to the physicality of the English game.
