Digne agent plays down PSG rumour
Lucas Digne's agent, ex-Denmark international striker Mikkel Beck, has denied French media claims his client has agreed a lucrative long-term deal with Paris Saint-Germain.
Digne, 19, became one of French football's most coveted assets after his superb displays for Lille last season confirmed his enormous potential.
According to northern French newspaper La Voix du Nord, the left-back, who is currently with France's Under-20 squad preparing for the World Cup in Turkey, has provided substance to the increasingly insistent rumours linking him to the Ligue 1 champions by reaching an agreement with PSG officials on a five-year deal worth €250,000-a-month.
However, Beck told Eurosport: "It's pure speculation for the moment. There's been no offer, not even any talks. Right now he's focused on the Under-20 World Cup with France. Anyway, he has a long contract with Lille where he feels really good."
Digne, who initially signed a three-year deal with the club he joined as a 12-year-old, penned an extension through to 2016 in January last year before adding a further year to that last December.
Digne last week admitted he was flattered by PSG's interest, while the club from the French capital will have little trouble in meeting Lille's €15 million valuation of a player whom Rudi Garcia, who left Lille to take over as Roma coach last week, claimed should already be given a chance in the senior France side.
According to French media reports, PSG would initially use Digne to provide cover for Maxwell before eventually taking the place of the 31-year-old Brazilian, whose performances earned him the nod ahead of his Lille counterpart in last season's Ligue 1 Team of the Year.
