Bayern Munich ‘still in race’ for Barcelona-linked Dest / Wolves confirm Semedo signing

Where’s his Dest-ination?

Having now sold Nelson Semedo to Wolves for a sizeable fee, Barcelona are now in a position to reinvest. Ajax full-back Sergino Dest has been linked with both Barcelona and European champions Bayern Munich.

Barca have reportedly submitted a €25 million bid to Ajax for the 19-year-old.

Barcelona have wanted to upgrade on Semedo and had been linked with a host of right-back options. Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin and Norwich City’s Max Aarons had both been touted but Dest appears the most likely option at this stage.

Bayern Munich’s interest could indicate a possible doubt in the confidence of Benjamin Pavard. Whilst Bayern also have Joshua Kimmich at the club, the German does appear to be seen by Flick as a possible Thiago Alcantara replacement in the midfield.

Pavard was bought from Stuttgart after his impressive showings in the 2018 Russian World Cup. The most likely thinking, however, is with Kimmich now seemingly considered a midfield option, Pavard has no recognised back-up and if Bayern are to try for a treble, strength in depth will be key.

Semedo signs

Wolves have completed the permanent signing of Nelson Semedo from Barcelona.

The deal reportedly worth a possible £37 million. Semedo becomes the 9th Portuguese player in the Wolves squad.

Rui Patracio, Roderick Miranda, Ruben Vinagre, Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, Vintinha, Daniel Podence, Pedro Neto and new signing Fabio Silva have created a strong contingent.

Executive Chairman Jeff Shi said, “It’s isn’t often that we have the opportunity to sign a world-class player from a world-class club. Nelson’s signing shows we will never stop progressing and we are still hungry and humble in our heart.”

Semedo could play in Wolves’ next fixture away to West Ham on Sunday.
