The market of signings of the summer of 2020 will be conditioned by the crisis of the coronavirus, but even so it aims to be very moved. The big clubs do not renounce to reinforce his projects and patch his maltrechos economic balances, by what have opened the door to shopping, sales and exchanges that in other circumstances would be unthinkable. For the moment, one of the hottest points is the Premier League.

In England ensure that Manchester City and Chelsea could litigate by an ex of the FC Barcelona, since both would follow to Lucas Digne very closely. The one of Meaux will fulfil 27 years in some weeks, but has a wide experience in the most powerful leagues of europa after breeding in the quarry of the Lille, sign by the PSG, play yielded in the Rome and happen two seasons in LaLiga before mudarse to the islands in 2018.

As 'ESPN', Pep Guardiola sees to the of the Everton like a big alternative for the left side, since neither Benjamin Mendy neither Oleksander Zinchenko have consolidated in the place. The ex of the Monaco is the firmest bet of the 'sky blues' in this plot, but the carousel of injuries that has struck him from his landing in the Etihad Stadium in 2017 has been an obstacle to see him shine again.

By his part, Frank Lampard follows improving the ambitious bet of the 'blues', that after several years tied of hands by a sanction of the FIFA, are spending his savings to return with strength to the fight by the titles. In this case, the headline could keep on being Marcos Alonso, and the sacrificed would be Emerson Palmieri that does not finish to convince and to the one who pursue the speculations on a traspaso.

Curiously, the priority of both is Ben Chilwell, but the Leicester resists to leave him escape. The 'foxes' have priced to the carrilero in 80 million euros, what has braked the advances of his beaux. Although Carlo Ancelotti has warned that the French does not move of Goodison Park, his agreement, that expires in 2023, could give more eases to mancunianos or londinenses to achieve an agreement.

Digne Recovered the smile in the Everton

Like other mates that accompanied him in his trip to Liverpool, Digne happened to be a secondary actor in the staff of the Barça to turn into indisputable in the Everton. The confidence has influenced positively in his performance, and this has repercutido in his statistics. Without having completed still two campaigns in the Premier, the defender has surpassed already his registers in the Camp Nou. With the 'toffees' accumulates 70 parties (6.021 minutes), five goals and 12 assistances by the 46 meetings (3.190 minutes), two so many and three definite passes that sealed like Barcelona.
