Sergino Dest is expected to leave Barcelona and join Dortmund

FC Barcelona defender and US men's national team starter Sergino Dest could join Borussia Dortmund in a swap deal for defender Thomas Meunier. The Catalan side reportedly intends to use Dest to acquire the 30-year-old Belgium international's services without paying Dortmund's €15m asking price. The like-for-like swap would also mean the German side wouldn't have to search for a replacement so late in the transfer window. Having failed to sign César Azpilicueta with the Chelsea manager, Xavi is still on the hunt for a right-back to challenge Sergi Roberto, with Arsenal's Hector Bellerín and Villarreal's Juan Foyth as potential last-minute options for the Bundesliga in the meantime. back. Meunier has been at Dortmund since 2020 but is reportedly interested in leaving. Before that, he played four seasons with Paris Saint-Germain, where he was a frequent starter.
