Chelsea’s interest in signing a full back is the subject of a piece in Mundo Deportivo today, which claims that Sergino Dest is a major target for the Blues.
We’re going to hear a lot of rather unrealistic transfer suggested in the weeks to come. In this case, there could be a deal done. Dest is a solid full back who can play on both sides. Barcelona are apparently keen to strengthen with two of Chelsea’s players in similar positions – Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta.
If one of those guys does make the most, that creates room for Dest at Chelsea. His ability to cover both sides would save us having to replace our backups if they’re sold.
Whether Thomas Tuchel likes the American international is another questions. But if he does, and Barca remain keen on our Spanish pair, perhaps a deal involving all three of them can be struck?
