Barcelona are financing the deal after selling Nelson Semedo to Wolves, and it seems they may have been helped because Dest is a Barcelona fan and wants to play with Messi.
The deal is expected to cost €20 million (£18m/$22m) plus €5m in variables.
Ronald Koeman who is new Barcelona coach has been trying to re-arrange the Spanish team following their failure to win any title last season.
Dest, 19, has been with Ajax since 2012 and made his USMNT debut in September 2019.
