Everton have confirmed Lucas Digne is due to go undergo surgery after suffering from an ankle ligament injury in training.
“The left-back was injured during a training session at USM Finch Farm this week,” an Everton statement read on Thursday.
“Digne is due to undergo surgery on Monday before commencing his rehabilitation under the care of the club’s medical staff.”
The 27-year-old French international has been an efficient performer in the strong start to the season, with Carlo Ancelotti’s team currently sixth in the Premier League table.
Digne has missed only five league matches since he joined the club in the summer of 2018 from Barcelona in an £18m deal.
