Dembele faces fitness check ahead of Barca return

Sat 23 October 2021 | 8:09

The Blaugrana winger has been sidelined with a hamstring injury for the past three months.

Ousmane Dembele was injured during France’s Euro 2020 game against Hungary in June. The French winger has not been able to play for Barcelona in their current campaign due to his lengthy recovery, but he is now one step closer to his long-awaited return.

According to


, Dembele is traveling to Finland to undergo a fitness test ahead of his return to Barca’s squad. World-renowned specialist Dr. Lasse Lampainen performed surgery on Dembele’s hamstring earlier this summer. The Barcelona star is now required to get final approval from Dr. Lampainen before making his return with the Catalans.

Dembele is expected to be available for Barcelona’s mid-week clash against Rayo Vallecano on Wednesday. This will provide Ronald Koeman with another option in his side’s final third, where the returns of Sergio Aguero and Ansu Fati have already improved the Catalans’ firepower.
