Barcelona move for Bayern Munich target


Barcelona have launched a last ditch bid to sign Ajax right-back Sergino Dest from under the nose of Bayern Munich, claims The Daily Mail.


The Spanish giants are on the market for a right-back after selling Nelson Semedo to Wolves in a deal worth around £30m.


Barcelona had a loan bid for Norwich's Max Aarons rejected by the Championship outfit and have now moved to hi-jack Bayern's deal for Dest.


With Semedo's deal pushed through to Barcleona, Ronald Koeman's side are now allowed to sign a replacement and have reportedly bid £18m for Dest.


Bayern appear to have paid the price for not getting a deal done while Barcelona where unable to sign any players.


Dest's move to Barcelona would end Aarons' dreams of moving to Spain but could open up the door for a move to Bayern.

Koeman wanted Dest to pledge his future to the Netherlands during his time as manager of the Oranje but the 19-year-old opted instead to make his international debut for the United States.


The teenage right-back was only promoted into the Ajax first-team last season where he made 20 league appearances before the season was curtailed early as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.


Dest, who registered four assists in his breakthrough league campaign, has come off the bench in each of Ajax's first two league games of this season amid talk of a move away.
