Arsenal are interested in bringing Paris Saint-German star Lucas Digne to the Emirates, according to the Daily Star.
Digne, who is a French international, has struggled for opportunities in Ligue 1 at PSG of late, with Brazilian ace Maxwell a consistent starter at left-back for the side. It appears, then, that the youngster could be set for a move in 2015, with a number of clubs interested in his services.
In fact, as many as five clubs are currently monitoring his situation, with the same report suggesting that Real Madrid, Roma, Inter Milan and Valencia, along with Arsenal, could swoop for him in the near future.
A left-back by trade, Digne only joined PSG in a big-money deal from rivals Lille in 2013 after previously being watched by Manchester United and Liverpool. In fact, the youngster previously admitted that he was pleased to be linked with the Red Devils, as he told reporters:
"Manchester United? They are a top club and to be linked with them means you must be doing something well, but I will not lose sleep."

Ultimately, the youngster opted against a move to England's elite division as he snubbed Manchester United and Liverpool in favour of a move to PSG. However, it appears that he may finally be ready to move to the Premier League, with Arsenal interested in his services.
Without a doubt, the Gunners are expected to bring a defender to the club in the January transfer window, with the club in need of a central-defender. Digne, though, could give them extra options in the back four as they go in search of success.
Arsene Wenger may well have a battle on his hands, however, with Real Madrid and Co. seemingly ready to pounce. It remains to be seen as to whether the Gunners will swoop for the player in the January transfer window or make their move next summer.
Arsenal's immediate attention, however, will turn to this weekend's Premier League clash with Burnley as they look to make it back-to-back wins in England's elite division. The Gunners can't afford to drop too many more points as they are already some way off the pace at the top of the table.
