Posted by

Barca are reported to be closing in on a final deal for Ajax right-back Sergino Dest, but their worrying financial situation looks likely to hamper any further signings before the summer transfer window comes to an end on October 5th. Goal has learned that Barca will officially announce the signing of Dest on either Monday or Tuesday having already reached an agreement over a £23m deal with the Dutch side.

Dest, 19-year-old will not travel to Camp Nou until after his transfer is finalised, but he has already said his final goodbyes to team-mates and staff members at Johan Cruyff ArenA. According to Goal, it is believed that Manchester City centre-back Eric Garcia is top of the club’s list of defensive targets, and that they are also prioritising the signing of a new striker following Luis Suarez’s switch to rival Atletico.
