Barcelona have agreed to the signing of Lucas Digne. After the 22-year-old agreed a five-year-deal at the club.

The defender joins the Blaugrana for €16.5 million. Which could rise to €20.5 million in add ons.

Digne is the second defender to join the ranks at Camp Nou. With Samuel Umtiti joining from Lyon for €25 million.

“Barcelona have reached an agreement with Paris Saint-Germain to sign French player Lucas Digne for the next five seasons,” a Barca statement confirmed.

“Barca have paid an initial 16.5 million euros with another four possible according to individual and team results. Digne’s buy-out clause is 60 million euros.

“Lucas Digne will arrive in Barcelona on Thursday early in the morning local time to undergo a medical and sign his contract.”

Barcelona have inserted a €60 million buyout clause in Digne’s contract, with the Meaux-born ace set to compete with Jordi Alba for the left-back spot in head coach Luis Enrique’s squad.

Digne emerged through Lille’s youth system to make 60 appearances in all competitions for Les Dogues, before joining PSG in 2013 for a fee believed to be in the region of €15 million.

He turned out 43 times for PSG but moved to Roma on a season-long loan last season after falling down the pecking order at the Parc des Princes.

Digne scored three goals in 39 appearances for Roma to help the Serie A outfit finish third and secure qualification for this season’s Champions League.
