Chelsea boss Tuchel eyeing Everton outcast Digne

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is eyeing Everton fullback Lucas Digne.

The Athletic says Tuchel is eyeing Digne as a possible January option.

Digne has grown frustrated at Everton. The 28-year-old was dropped from Everton's squad for the 2-1 win against Arsenal last Monday, despite being fit to play.

France international Digne is understood to disagree with manager Rafa Benitez's often defensive tactics, with the pair having a fallout before the Arsenal game.

He was previously linked with Chelsea last year, and now rumours have resurfaced regarding a potential January bid from the Blues.

With no date set for Ben Chilwell's return, Chelsea are crying out for urgent reinforcements at left-back with the Blues challenging for silverware on multiple fronts.
