Without much doubts, Chelsea football club will be keen on winning some more trophies under the management of Thomas Tuchel before the end of the 2021/2022 season.

The West London club made some signings during the summer as they look to compete with the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool for the Premier League title this season.

However, that is quite working out well for Chelsea so far as they are currently occupying the 3rd position on the league table following their recent 0-0 draw against Wolves on Sunday.

And now, Chelsea remain keen on improving their defensive options and have been linked with a move for Everton left-back Lucas Digne when the transfer window opens.

The 28-year-old France International, who joined Everton after leaving La Liga side Barcelona in 2018 has been an important member of the first-team squad over the previous seasons.

The experienced left-back was quite involved for Everton during the 2020/2021 season where he recorded seven assists in 36 appearances in all competitions.

Lucas Digne has however struggled to rediscover his best form at Everton this season, recording just one assist in the 15 matches he has played so far.

And now according to reports from The Sun, Chelsea are ready to offer him an escape route by bringing him to the Stamford Bridge when the transfer window opens.

The reports further claimed that Chelsea are the favourites to sign Lucas Digne in January ahead of the likes of Newcastle, West Ham United and Leicester City.

If signed, Lucas Digne will serve as a replacement for the injured Ben Chilwell and provide cover for Marcos Alonso in that Chelsea left-back position.
