Barcelona have reportedly identified Chelsea midfielder Hakim Ziyech as a potential loan addition during the January transfer window.
Despite their ongoing financial problems, the Catalan giants are expected to be in the market for new players at the turn of the year.
A previous report has suggested that new head coach Xavi may be limited to approximately £8.5m, increasing the need for club officials to offload unwanted squad players.
According to Sport, Ziyech has emerged as a possible arrival at Camp Nou in a straight loan agreement.
While the report suggests that Barcelona would not be able to afford a permanent deal in the summer, it is claimed that a temporary transfer may suit all parties.
The 28-year-old, who has also been linked with Borussia Dortmund, has been restricted to eight starts and two substitute appearances in all competitions this season.
