BARCELONA are reportedly weighing up a swap deal for versatile right-back Sergino Dest.

The LaLiga giants are said to be considering a move for Ajax’s Noussair Mazraoui, with Dest heading in the opposite direction.


But a swap could be thwarted by interest from Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich.

ESPN reports Bayern are interested in bringing the USA international to the Allianz Arena after missing out on his signature last year.

The 21-year-old left Ajax for the Nou Camp back in October 2020 after opting for Spain over Germany.

But the Bavarian outfit have stayed in touch and even sounded the player out about a potential loan move earlier this year.

Barca are skint and reliant on players leaving to bring in reinforcements.

Morocco international Mazraoui is being eyed as an option to provide competition for veteran defender Dani Alves.

Chelsea skipper Cesar Azpilicueta is another full-back target in Catalonia, although the 32-year-old recently indicated he would rather stay in London.
