Everton fullback Digne hails ex-Lille pal Hazard: He embodies football

Everton fullback Lucas Digne isn't surprised to see Real Madrid wishing to tempt Eden Hazard away from Chelsea.

Digne, on-loan from Barcelona, played with Hazard at Lille.

He told France Football: "I know him, but he remains unpredictable and one of the best players in the world.

"He always has the right gesture when it is necessary, even if not to be decisive.

"If he has to make the penultimate pass that will bring a goal, he will do it. He embodies football. He breathes football."
