Marco Silva looks set to follow up the signing of Barcelona left-back Lucas Digne by bringing yet another defender from Camp Nou to Goodison Park this week.

Digne, 25, signed with Everton from Barcelona on August 1, but the defender caused a bit of an uproar among supporters when it came to light that he had the words to the Anfield anthem tattooed across his chest.

He added: 'Maybe Liverpool fans are so angry against me because I said two times no to Liverpool.

Everton's new recruit, Lucas Digne says he wants to show his best football and win with the club after he completed his transfer to the Premier League club. After spending the 2015-16 season on loan at Roma, he moved to Barcelona in 2016 and made 12 La Liga appearances. "We speak together, he's a very good guy, he said to me "welcome" and he's so friendly". "I said no to Liverpool two times". He said to me I have to play more, I am young and I want to play more.


However, there also the 27-year-old could not make his first team position fixed and the player only played 90 minutes once just last season in the league. I progressed a lot as a player and as a person by playing with the best players in the world.

He had been linked with a departure from the club prior to the World Cup, but his performances in Russian Federation have increased his options and seen a variety of sides linked with him. "He'll choose the best for his career and we'll see".

Everton later announced the signing of 18-year-old goalkeeper Joao Virginia from Arsenal.
