Barcelona are still in full crisis mode. Not only are the results simply not going their way but they are facing far too many injuries this season as well. And when you take into account that the Catalans’ squad is extremely thin as it is, it spells nothing but doom and gloom.

Luckily, the January transfer window is just around the corner and this could throw a lifeline to Ronald Koeman and co. According to the new report from SPORT, the Dutch gaffer has already requested new signings to deal with the injury scare at the club.

The latest to join the unavailable players is none other than Ousmane Dembélé so the priority, alongside a defender of course, will also be a versatile forward. These two positions must absolutely be reinforced once the market opens and this is where Barcelona’s focus will lie.

However, as we already know, the money is also scarce so the choices may be limited unless some players are sold first.

Eric García is at the top of the list but SPORT say that if the youngster can’t come, Koeman would ideally go for an experienced option instead. As for the forward, Memphis Depay is still very much in the conversation but everything will depend on the availability, price and the new board’s final say in the matter.

An interesting month awaits the Azulgranas.
