Barcelona were given a boost on Monday as Ousmane Dembele was back at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper as he steps up his recovery from injury.

The French forward has been out since picking up a hamstring injury in November that saw Barcelona rule him out for 10 weeks.

Dembele has been having treatment on the injury in Qatar but is now back at the club and finally closing in on a return to first-team action.

The 22-year-old was not part of the first team’s recovery session on Monday morning but was snapped running which will be a boost to new manager Quique Setien, particularly with Luis Suarez out for four months.

Sport report that Dembele could make his return from injury against Napoli in the first leg of Barcelona’s Champions League last-16 tie on February 25.
