Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard has admitted that his club is interested in signing Everton left-back Lucas Digne.

Digne fell out with the Toffees boss Rafa Benitez and has since been linked with a series of clubs including Vill and speaking after their FA Cup loss to Man United on Monday night, Gerrard admitted that the links were true.

Asked about the Digne rumors, Gerrard said: “We are working hard on targets. It is not respectful to mention any names but there is no smoke without fire and we want to try and improve certain areas of our team and our squad.”

Should he sign, Digne will be the second player Villa would be signing in January after the arrival of Philippe Coutinho on loan from Barcelona.
