Sergino Dest, right-back Ajax Amsterdam, is closer than ever to joining Barcelona during the current summer transfer period, as an agreement with the Dutch club is approaching.
The Catalan newspaper “Sport” said that the American player traveled to Barcelona with the permission of Ajax on Tuesday evening, but the Spanish club’s management does not want to officially announce the matter before finalizing the agreement with Ajax.
She added that the 19-year-old will undergo a medical examination tomorrow, Wednesday, in preparation for the official announcement of the deal next Thursday, for 25 million euros, and the player will sign a five-year contract until June 2025.
Dest will be Barcelonas first deals during the reign of new coach Ronald Koeman, who knows well his abilities during his time at Ajax, as he became one of the best promising right-back players in Europe.
It is reported that Dest, who was one of the most important keys to playing Ajax last season after making 5 goals in the Dutch league, will compensate for the departure of Nelson Simedo, who moved to Wolverhampton.
