Lucas Digne turned down Liverpool for Barcelona

Barcelona recruit Lucas Digne reportedly turned down Liverpool to sign with the Spanish giants.

The French left-back was the subject of serious interest from the Reds before he left PSG to sign a five-year deal with Barcelona in July.

Spanish publication Fichajes suggests that Digne, 23, rejected advances from the Anfield club who were desperate to sign a new left-sided defender during the summer transfer market.

However, the France international opted for Camp Nou with Barca paying an initial fee of close to £14million.

Digne made his Barcelona debut in the Spanish Super Cup against Sevilla earlier this month as a first-half substitute and has since notched three appearances, including a La Liga debut as a second-half sub against Athletic Bilbao last week.
