Ousmane Dembele

will undergo surgery on his knee due to the injury he sustained playing for


at Euro 2020.

The 24-year-old was substituted in Les Bleus’ 1-1 draw against Hungary when he got hurt.

France confirmed on Monday that the


winger will miss the rest of the tournament.

Barca have done more tests and noticed a dislocation of his right knee’s biceps tendon and pronounced on Tuesday that he will need surgery.

Whereas the duration of his recovery is unknown, reports claim that he may be out of action for three to four months.

Dembele has suffered many injury setbacks since joining Camp No from Borussia Dortmund four years ago on a €105million transfer fee.

He has only started 54 La Liga games during four campaigns with Barcelona, while in the 2020-21 season, he had completed only five matches.

Barca recruited some attacking options for the next campaign when they signed with Sergio Aguero and Memphis Depay, who are both joining as free agents.
