Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde has been discussing who could come in and replace Ousmane Dembele for Tuesday night’s clash with Eibar at Camp Nou.

The Frenchman has been ruled out for up to four months due to injury meaning Valverde must makes changes to his team for tomorrow’s game.

"There are several players that can play that position," he said.

"We have [Gerard] Deulofeu, Aleix Vidal, Denis Suarez, Andre Gomes. There's also the B team. We will look for alternatives to put together a side.

“Vidal's a good player who can play at right-back or further forward, so he's a useful player to have.

"Performances in training and in games are what decisions are based on and Arda, too, is very much a squad player who is here to play."

Deulofeu appears the most obvious choice to come in but Valverde does have options and it will be interesting to see which team he goes with tomorrow night.
