"I said two times "no" because I am a Blue".

The France worldwide moved to Barcelona in 2016 where he played 46 times and won the double last season with Ernesto Valverde's side. "In some moments I will need to give him more time but it was better to give him 60 to be ready for next week".

To do that, he will have to secure his position ahead of Baines, who has made more than 400 appearances for Everton since joining the club from Wigan in 2007. It's an exciting challenge. 'He plays very well, he's so young, he has a lot of quality, he's very technical.

France defender and Everton's new £18million signing from Barcelona, Lucas Digne has berated Liverpool fans for misinterpreting his chest tatoo "I Never Walk Alone" to mean a mockery of their beloved club and taking to the social media to vilify him.

Digne also revealed he has tried to tempt his former Barcelona team-mate Yerry Mina, who has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United, to follow him to Everton.

And the Portuguese coach will hope his friendship with compatriot Jose Mourinho can help him out.

Digne arrived at Goodison Park in an initial £18m deal earlier this week, signing a five-year contract with the Toffees.

And in quotes appearing in the Liverpool Echo, Digne said: "There is nothing about football, it is just about my parents".

"After when I was 18 years old in Lille I got a tattoo and maybe the Liverpool fans are angry because I said, two times, "no" to sign for Liverpool".
