Inter are set to chase Barcelona defender Lucas Digne, according to the Corriere dello Sport.

He is one of three defenders the Nerazzurri want to sign, including Dalbert Henrique of Nice, and Jose Luis Gaya of Valencia.

​Digne, a former PSG and Roma player, is not the Beneamata’s priority, as they still see
Henrique as their Number 1 target. If the Brazilian doesn’t move to the San Siro, however, the French international would be seen as the ideal target.

The 23-year-old, however, has the advantage of having already played in Italy, and under Inter’s new sporting director, Walter Sabatini, the two having worked together at Roma.

A former Lille player, Digne was expected to play a starring role at the Nou Camp after being signed last summer, but only made 14 Liga starts.

He was signed for €16.5 million by the Catalans.

Gaya, for his part, is seen as one of the most promising young defenders in La Liga, and is a valid alternative.
