Lucas Digne could be fit for Everton when they welcome West Ham to Goodison Park on Sunday in what is a huge boost for the Toffees according to a report from the Liverpool Echo.
This news comes after the official Everton website claimed last week that the 28-year-old left-back was a big doubt for the game against the Hammers after he suffered a hamstring injury.
West Ham would really fancy their chances against Rafa Benitez’s side if Digne doesn’t play, such is his importance to the Toffees.
The game on Sunday is a huge one for the Hammers as we look to bounce back from our disappointing defeat to Brentford 11 days ago.
It’s a big one for Everton as well, who could climb as high as top of the table with a win, if results elsewhere go their way of course.
Lucas Digne boost for Everton ahead of West Ham clash?
The French left-back could be fit to play on Sunday against the Hammers.
That’s according to the Liverpool Echo.
And what a big boost that will be for Rafa and his team.
Digne has played a key role for Rafa Benitez’s new look Everton side this season.
In six Premier League outings, the former Barcelona ace has averaged 1.4 tackles, one interception and two clearances per game (Who Scored).
He is a very good defender and is a constant threat going forward down the left hand flank.
His deliveries from set-pieces really are something special as well.

And whether Digne plays or not on Sunday will undoubtedly have a huge bearing on the outcome of the game between Everton and West Ham.
