The French club that applied for Sergiño Dest

The transfer market continues on its course and this time it’s Nice who are taking the lead by accelerating their movements to strengthen their squad. While the initial focus was on finding a left-back, Nice’s sporting director also wants to strengthen the right flank of his defence. In the last few hours, direct contact has been made with Barcelona to negotiate the possible arrival of Sergiño Dest on loan, keeping talks between the parties involved active.

Although Nice were more active in terms of departures than signings at the start of the market, the club are still looking for at least two more players to strengthen their squad ahead of lockdown on September 1. The search for a left-back appears to be nearing completion with reinforcements expected at the Cote d’Azur early next week. However, there is also an urgent need for a right-back.

Nice have accelerated their strategy in this market and in addition to looking for a left-back, the sporting director also wants to strengthen the right wing of his defence. Direct negotiations with Barcelona were the latest approach to ensure Sergiño Dest’s possible arrival on loan. Although talks are still ongoing, it remains to be clarified how the economic part of this operation will be managed.

The player, who Barcelona acquired at a significant price from Ajax in 2020, has not lived up to expectations during his time at the Camp Nou. Despite being on loan at AC Milan for a season, his playing time was limited.

Youth, development potential and credit availability make Dest an attractive candidate for Nice. However, a crucial detail is the agreement on how the payload will be shared between the clubs given the player’s high salary. Although the agreement is still pending, the outcome could depend on this economic aspect. At the same time, PSV Eindhoven have also shown interest in the player with their appearances against Barcelona.

Nice are keen to strengthen themselves with a promising right-back and if they manage to secure the deal in Sergiño Dest he could add value to their defense in their quest for promotion up the Ligue 1 table.
