The French teenage sensation is set to swap Lille for Merseyside.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has identified Lille left-back Lucas Digne as a top priority in the transfer market this summer, according to the Guardian.
The 19-year-old has had an impressive season at his current club and Rodgers sees the Frenchman as the ideal competition for Luis Enrique.
Digne has played 41 games for Lille in 2012/13, including four starts in the Champions League and two Ligue 1 goals.
The teenager is one of the most capped players at the French club this campaign, despite his tender age and since breaking into the fast team in 2011 the defender has quickly established himself as a first-team regular.
Digne was also shortlisted for the prestigious Ligue 1 Young Player of the Year award.
Rodgers has around £20million to bring in new players this summer and after the retirement of Anfield stalwart Jamie Carragher, defence is a priority for the Northern Irishman.
For experience the manager is aiming to bring in 32-year-old Kolo Toure on a free transfer, as the Ivorian’s contract at Manchester City is up this summer.
Therefore Digne would provide the perfect mix of youth to counter Toure’s appointment, although in a relatively short career so far the France youth international has built up a significant number of appearances.
To make way for the new signings Rodgers will look to offload Sebastian Coates, who has failed to impress during his two seasons on Merseyside and the out-of-favour Martin Skrtel.
As well as Digne and Toure, Liverpool are also keen on a move for highly sought after Schalke centre-back Krygiakos Papadopolous – although the defender’s £19.2million transfer fee may prove to be a stumbling block.
