Lucas Digne’s agent has denied reports he has held talks with Liverpool regarding a move to Anfield for the Paris Saint-Germain left-back.
PSG boss Laurent Blanc revealed last week that Digne had made it clear he wanted to leave the club, with Liverpool widely reported to be keen on making him their eighth signing of the summer.
It had been reported in France that PSG had given Digne’s agent, former Middlesbrough striker Mikkel Beck, permission to talk to Liverpool officials over a possible move, but that speculation has been dismissed.

"That’s not right," Beck told Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet. "They have not given me permission to talk to Liverpool.
"I cannot comment on the clubs’ names, but there is interest from several large systems. We have to see if something will come eventually, but that is what is being worked on. Lucas is not 100 percent satisfied with the situation in Paris."
It was reported in Spain on Wednesday, meanwhile, that Liverpool’s current first-choice left-back, Alberto Moreno, was on a long list of potential Barcelona targets should Adriano leave the Nou Camp.
