In Sergino Dest, Barcelona believe they might have finally found the man to replace Dani Alves.
The Brazilian was one of the very best players of his generation, and the Catalans understandably struggled to replace him after his departure.
Under Ronald Koeman, Dest is showing signs that he can offer something to the team in defence and attack, and that was again highlighted as he scored twice in the 6-1 win over Real Sociedad.
Upon his arrival at the Camp Nou, the American said that Dani Alves was an idol of his, and that he had learned a lot from watching videos of the Brazilian.
A lot of attempted successors have come and gone since his 2016 departure, but Dest could finally be the one to fill the void Alves left in the XI.
