Sergino Dest has been a hot name in the transfer market this window, as far as defenders are concerned. The Ajax right-back has been linked with a few clubs, but Barcelona and Bayern Munich have seemed the most interested. After an impressive 2019/20 season, the recently capped US international Dest wants to make a step up to the next level in his career. And what better place to do it than any of the top clubs in the world?
According to the latest news now, Barcelona have stolen the march to get ahead in the race to secure Dest’s transfer. After the departure of Nelsen Semedo to Wolves for a reported 35 million pounds fee, the common narrative has been sealing moves for Eric Garcia and Sergino Dest. And now, having agreed on personal terms with the player, all that remains is for Barca to agree on a fee with Ajax. The Catalan club now seems confident that it is a matter of time and can get a deal over the line for the defender.
Dest would definitely play a great role in the current Barca team. With Koeman not convinced with Semedo and preferring Sergi Roberto in midfield, a natural right-back will help the team per their defined roles in the tactical system. Sergino Dest had a good season for Ajax. Making 4 assists in 20 appearances for the club, he also had an average of 1.9 key tackles per game. His athleticism and forward surge mentality are his strong suits. The future developments would be interesting, and Barcelona are on track to further solidify their transfer window.
