FC Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman has confirmed his first signing as coach of the Catalan giants, although the club is yet to announce the deal.
The Dutchman, who has already seen several players leave the Camp Nou, has now confirmed that Sergino Dest, who was also targeted by Bayern Munich, will join the Blaugrana from Ajax Amsterdam.
"Dest's having medical, still has to sign contract," Koeman said, as quoted by ESPN journalist Samuel Marsden.
"He's a young fullback, it's about having young players for the club's future. He has to compete with the other fullbacks we have.
"Despite age, he's played a lot of games, played in Champions League. A very useful player."
The 22-year-old came through Ajax's youth academy and made 38 first-team appearances in the 2019/20 campaign. He also made his USA debut in September 2019.
