Barcelona has received permission from La Liga to sign an emergency action to replace the injured Ousmane Dembele.
Dembele has been excluded for six months with a hamstring crack after surgery in Finland and due to the seriousness of the injury, La Liga has given the Catalan giants the green light to sign a replacement.
The club now has 15 days to complete the signing of a player who is currently trading in La Liga or who is a free agent.

Their new signing will only be able to play league games and is excluded from playing European football that starts again for Barcelona against Napoli.
Lionel Messi, Antoine Griezmann and Ansu Fati are the only forwards currently available for Quique Setien after the January exits of Carles Perez and Abel Ruiz.
Mundo Deportivo claim that Barcelona sent the relevant documentation to La Liga’s medical committee last Thursday requesting permission to sign a replacement.
The green light was then given on Monday morning after the committee confirmed the injury as a long-term dismissal, described as one that keeps a player out for at least five months.
The last name to be linked is the former Middlesbrough flop Martin Braithwaite, who has scored eight goals for Leganes this season.
