Lucas Digne's tattoo is causing big a stir after news he is joining Everton

The Frenchman has ‘I Never Walk Alone' inked across his chest.

Lucas Digne is joining Everton from Barcelona on a five-year deal.

The 25-year-old Frenchman took to Twitter to share the news.

Speaking on evertontv, he said: “Everton is a big club with a great history. I want to play games, win games and excite the fans with the quality of our football.”

However, eagle-eyes fans have noticed Digne appears to have “I Never Walk Alone” tattooed on his body – a phrase that is remarkably similar to Liverpool’s club motto “You’ll Never Walk Alone”.

Digne has an impressive CV having begun his career at Lille before moving on to Paris St Germain, Roma and then Barcelona, for whom he made 46 appearances in two seasons.
