Lucas Digne: Happy at Lille and not paying attention to transfer speculation

The highly-rated left-back, 19, has reportedly attracted the attention of several Premier League clubs, including Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City.

Real Madrid are also understood to be keeping tabs on Digne's progress and he admits he does not know for sure what will happen in the summer, but he is not planning to move and is staying focused on fulfilling his potential.

"Suitors? I don't pay any attention to that. Really," he told L'Equipe.

"I joined a group of players who were champions of France when I was just 18 and I realise that I have experienced something really quickly, because I didn't expect to play so often.

"I hear I am one of the most promising full-backs, but what does it mean? How many players were promising and what did they do then?"

"Leaving Lille? It is the club where I have been educated, and I am very fine here. We will see."
