Barcelona to seek emergency replacement signing for Dembele

Barcelona may seek an emergency replacement signing for the injured Ousmane Dembele.

Marca says based on Article 124.3, of the regulations, a club can sign a replacement for an injured player outside of the usual transfer windows, so long as certain conditions are met.

One of these, and perhaps the most important criteria, is for the injury to be for a minimum of five months.

It's not clear yet exactly how long Dembele's injury will take for the player to recover, but if the time out is five months or longer then Barcelona would consider making use of this rule to try to sign a reinforcement in attack, according to club sources.

That replacement would have to currently be playing within Spain.
