AS Roma’s sporting director, Tiago Pinto, holds a deep admiration for Aston Villa’s left-back, Lucas Digne. Digne’s future at Villa Park appeared uncertain during the summer transfer window, with speculation suggesting his departure. However, as the transfer dust settled, Digne has solidified his position as a key player under the guidance of manager Unai Emery.
According to reports from Italian publication Il Romanista, there may be an avenue for Digne to depart Villa, either in the upcoming winter transfer window or the subsequent summer, if circumstances evolve.
The 30-year-old Frenchman has certainly left his mark during his time at Aston Villa, featuring in an impressive 51 matches and even managing to find the back of the net once.
His current market value, as per Transfermarkt.com, stands at an impressive 15 million euros.
AS Roma, the illustrious Italian giants, are reportedly keen on securing Digne’s services once more, reigniting a partnership that had previously flourished. Digne enjoyed a fruitful loan spell with the capital club during the 2015-2016 season, leaving a lasting impression on both fans and the coaching staff.
