Liverpool target Lucas Digne is reportedly on the verge of completing a move to Roma, with his initial loan deal to be confirmed by tomorrow.
The Italian giants have been growing frustrated with the lack of progress over the deal, but according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, it appears as though they have made a breakthrough.

That breakthrough will leave Liverpool disappointed as it had been reported by the English media that the Reds have been monitoring Digne’s situation in Paris.
The left-back isn’t expected to feature in Laurent Blanc’s plans this season, and so the capital club are willing to allow him to leave.
It is claimed by Gazzetta that he will join Roma in an initial €1.5m loan deal, with the right to buy next summer at €16.5m to make his move permanent.
The ‘pink paper’ also claims that the 22-year-old could arrive in time to watch his new side in action against Sevilla tomorrow as he looks ahead to joining up with them in training ahead of the new Serie A season which gets underway next weekend.
