Lucas Digne has revealed he rejected offers from Premier League clubs to join Roma.

The full-back moved to the Italian side this summer from Paris Saint-Germain, arriving on a season-long loan with a view to permanent switch.

However, the France international has now revealed that he could have ended up in England after receiving offers from top-flight sides.

Arsenal and Liverpool were two teams linked with Digne, and he told L'Equipe: "[Coach Rudi] Garcia had a big impact on my decision to come here, but he wasn't the only reason, since Roma have been interested in me for years.

"I'd received offers from England too, but I realised that Roma was the club I wanted the most. I'm here on loan, so I can't say how long I'll be here, but I'll give everything for this shirt."
