Barcelona have until March 6 to sign a replacement for Ousmane Dembélé, according to Sport.
The Catalan club filed a request to La Liga last week when they learned that Dembélé would be sidelined for six months following surgery in Finland.
The medical report was studied by a team of experts to confirm the extent of the injury before Barça could be given the green light to sign outside the January transfer window. After studying it, the RFEF and La Liga’s medical committee have confirmed that the Blaugrana can now make a signing.
The club has been given 15 days to do a deal. They can only sign a player already registered in Spain or a player without a club. There have been several names linked with a move to Camp Nou, including Willian José (Real Sociedad), Loren (Real Betis), Lucas Pérez (Alavés), Ángel (Getafe) and Martin Braithwaite (Leganés).
