8. Lucas Digne (Barcelona – Everton)
One of the brightest lights in another underwhelming season for Everton, France’s Lucas Digne proved his quality to the Toffee’s faithful. Arguably if it wasn’t for another left back across Merseyside, he’d be considered the best in the league on current form.
Digne has an elegant toughness to him, as well as excellent set-piece delivery. He has the most accurate crosses in the league with a grand total of 68. He also created more chances than any other defender – including Liverpool’s widely vaunted pair – with 56 in total. Now they just need to sign somebody who can finish them off.
