For Barcelona, February has proved to be a month in which weaknesses have been exposed and the need for fresh faces made plain and clear.
Defensive problems persist; the Catalans have failed to keep a clean sheet in 12 straight games.
Their forwards have also been drawing blanks, looking lost for answers against organised defences.
Even Lionel Messi has looked out of sorts. Hence the continued calls for attacking reinforcements.
Spanish paper Mundo Deportivo has reported that, after discussing the club's future with manager Tito Vilanova, the technical team has prioritised the signings of a goalkeeper, a centre-back and a forward.
A number of Barca players are also rumoured to be on the outs, presumably to make way for new signings and promoted players.
Let's take a closer look at what the media has been saying.
