In order to keep on improving the squad for next season, Barcelona already has set a target for this transfer window. According to the Catalan daily newspaper ‘Sport’, the club has their eyes on right-back Sergino Dest, Ajax’s promise.
Some vehicles from the Netherlands confirmed the interest of the Blaugrana club in the young man, who is seen by the Spanish press as “Ajax’s Daviel Alves”.
One of the main reasons for the interest would be the athlete’s versatility. The player can also play on the left side, which would make him an option to replace Jordi Alba.
Another thing that makes Dest a good option is that he has Dutch nationality, even though he plays for the United States National Team. With that, the team will open a place for hiring players who do not have European nationalities. That would be good for Barcelona to search for players in South America.
The biggest problem for Barca when negotiating to sign Sergino would be competition from other European giants, such as Bayern Munich and Tottenham, which could make the player’s value increase because of the high demand for him.
However, the television program Veronicainside says that Dest has overlooked the possible interest of the Germans to give preference to the Spanish. In the current season, the first in the professional team of Ajax, the player played 36 matches and scored two goals, in addition to giving six assists.
He is a good player and can help Barcelona increase their quality on the wings. Dest made a very good 2018-19 season for Ajax B on the Eerste Divisie and that made him get a place on the professional team. Going to a bigger club may help him improve his football and show more talents. And Barcelona is a very good option to do that.
