Barcelona hold Dest talks amidst Chelsea interest

Barcelona are set to hold talks with Sergiño Dest about his future.

It comes as the American international continues to be linked with a  move to West London and Chelsea.

Thomas Tuchels’s side are looking for reinforcements at full-back with ben Chilwell out for the rest of the season, whilst Reece James will miss up to two months after picking up a hamstring injury.

Dest only joined Barcelona 15 months ago from Ajax, and has gone on to make 42 appearances for them scoring twice.

However, the club are still struggling to comply with Spanish FFP regulations and have been unable to register new signing Ferran Torres from Manchester City, needing to trim their wage bill further first.

And that means that they could be ready to sanction the sale of Dest, along with several other players, in order to raise such much needed funds.

Phillppe Coutinho has already left the club to join Aston Villa on loan.
