Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele has injured again and he is set to be sidelined for three or four weeks after he sustained a hamstring injury.

Dembele signed for Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund in a deal worth £138million in a bid to replace Neymar who left for Barcelona.

"Tests have confirmed that the player has suffered a hamstring injury to the semitendinosus muscle that does not affect the area operated on earlier in the season," Barcelona said in a statement.

Dembele got injured after making just three appearances with the Camp Nou outfit and after making his return this year he has once again sustained a hamstring injury after making four appearances and he will spend the next four weeks on the treatment bed.

He was scheduled to make his return on February 11 and he will be available for the clash against Chelsea in the second round of the Champions League at the Stamford Bridge.

Barcelona has been in scintillating form this season and the impact of the French international is hardly felt by the squad since he is yet to stamp his authority since his arrival in the summer.
