FIFA have banned the Catalan giants from adding to their squad over the next year after they breached regulations regarding the recruitment of under-18 players.
Vice president Manel Arroyo has revealed that Barcelona's legal team are working alongside the Spanish Football Federation to try to get the suspension overturned and are "convinced" that it will not affect their summer transfer activity.
Arroyo told reporters: "We're working on an appeal that will give us an interim suspension of the transfer ban.
"We want to have a normal summer. We're convinced that we will be able to sign new players. It's a significant ban and our legal team is working so that we'll be able to sign new players this summer."
