14:56 Ajax, Roma and Monaco are fighting for the signature of Serginio Dest. La Gezzetta dello Sport brings this news. The full-back position was not initially guaranteed at FC Barcelona since Xavi took charge, so a departure would not be a bad idea for both the club and the player.
The Italians will be openly interested in the right-back, who also had to work as a winger several times in the first half of the season when the need was due to multiple injuries. That was when Ronald Koeman was at the top of the list, who himself put the USA international at the top of his wish list when he was swinging. Xavi is less convinced and the first division club wants to take advantage of that.
Barcelona wants to get about twenty million euros for the full-back. If Roma pays this amount, it means that Rick Karsdorp will have a serious competitor. According to the Romanian club’s board of directors, the Dutchman suffers from too many injuries, so they want to invest in a decent and talented defender. The club wants to get rid of Alessandro Florenzi, so that the money for Dest is freed up.
But Ajax is also called. It is now clear that Nassir Mazraoui will close the door at the Johan Cruyff Arena behind him on a no-transfer basis at the end of the season. So the Amsterdam squad could look for a new back, although Devin Wrench has already shown he’s a talented replacement. So the chance of the Eredivisie leader depositing twenty million for Dest seems very slim.
