- Sergino Dest is set to be announced as Barcelona's new signing in the coming week
- The 19-year-old is currently in Spain to undergo a medical ahead of a move to the Camp Nou
- The right-back made 35 appearances for Ajax last season and earned three caps for the United States
Sergino Dest has arrived in barcelona ahead of a summer move to the Camp Nou outfit for £22.8million from Ajax.
Since the departure of Nelson Semedo to Premier League side Wolves, Sergi Roberto is the only available option at rightback.
And the Ajax academy graduate who made his way into their first team last season is set to undergo medical at the club.
The 19-year-old was allowed to leave for Spain despite both clubs not agreeing a price yet, but reports claim a £22.8m is on the cards for the youngster.
If things go according to plan, a deal for the teenage right-back is expected to be completed at the end of the week.
Dest played 35 matches in all competitions for Ajax in his breakthrough season before the Eredivisie was canceled due to the pandemic.
He joined the Armesterdam outfit at the age of 11 in 2012 and made his debut for the United States last year, making three appearances.
Dest is born to a Dutch mother and an American father but chose to represent the United States at senior international level.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Lionel Messi has openly come out to admit that he made mistakes but it was in the best interest of his darling club, Barcelona.
The 33-year-old submitted a transfer request in the summer after having a spat with the club's hierarchy but later rescinded his decision to leave the Camp Nou.
In the build-up to Barca's first La Liga game against Villarreal last weekend, the Argentine also lashed the club for letting his best friend leave the club to rivals, Atletico Madrid.
Legit.ng also reported that Luis Suarez has finally explained how his best friend Lionel Messi felt when he heard about his decision to leave Barcelona claiming that the Argentine was surprised.
After spending six years at Barcelona, things fell apart when the club suffered an embarrassing defeat in the Champions League against Bayern Munich.
The loss against Bayern Munich also made the club fire Setien and replace him with Ronald Koeman who has been mandated to bring titles to the Nou Camp.
