Ronald Koeman believes that Sergino Dest has the potential to offer a lot to Barcelona in the future.
The 19-year-old right-back is set to join from Ajax to fill the void of Nelson Semedo, who recently completed a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
“He is going to be a very useful player for Barcelona,” Koeman said on Wednesday’s press conference ahead of Thursday’s game against Celta Vigo.
“Despite his age, Dest has already played a lot of games in professional football, including some in the Champions League.
“He is going to have to compete with the other full-backs.
“Having young players is important for the future of this club.”
